Signage is about providing signs - in public areas or areas near dwellings or schools - that indicate that spraying is being, or has been carried out in or nearby that area.

Use signs to clearly show agrichemical applications when within:

  • 10m of public land (roads) when a shelter belt is giving effective protection
  • 30m of public land (roads) when no shelter belt is present.

Do not
have these signs as permanent fixtures - put the sign(s) out when you start spraying and remove when you've finished.

And use these signs whether you are applying a foliar feed or a hazardous insecticide - the person who is going to complain won't know what you are spraying, just that you are spraying!
