Come along: spray workshops at Toobeah, Boomi and North Star

With Cotton Australia investigating early reports of spray drift across a number cotton-growing districts in recent weeks, all growers and spray applicators are encouraged to attend this week's spray workshops.

It is critical for all farmers and spray applicators, regardless of what crop they are growing and what chemistry they are applying, to follow best practice this season. The workshops will provide practical advice to help spray applicators avoid spray drift.

The events are supported by Cotton Australia, the Macintyre Valley Cotton Growers Association and FMC.
