Australia. Herbicide Runoff Reduced to Great Barrier Reef

An innovative new approach to sugarcane plantation weed management trialled in select Great Barrier Reef (GBR) catchments has shown a 90 per cent reduction in runoff of highly soluble herbicides into waterways.
In the lower Burdekin region of northern Australia, scientists from CSIRO’s Water for a Healthy Country Flagship trialled a new technique for applying herbicides to raised beds of furrow irrigated sugar cane by using a specially adapted shielded sprayer. The technique minimises the likelihood of herbicides such as diuron, atrazine, ametryn and hexazinone coming into contact with irrigation water.
