The herbicide used will be 2,4-D, present as 500g/L Dimethylamine salt or products containing 625g/L Diethanolamine & Treithanolamine Salts or Dimethylamine & Diethanolamine Salts. The herbicide will be applied by selective spot spray to the weed, minimising run-off and damage to other plants.
Under the Noxious Weeds Act 1993, Ludwigia is a class 3 Noxious Weed that all land owners have a responsibility to control. Ludwigia has the ability to choke waterways, and reduce biodiversity of our native flora and fauna. Ludwigia is very difficult to control and requires commitment to controlling the weed over many years to achieve success.
During the spray period please do not use, swim or allow pets to enter the water at the sites listed above.
