warning signs?

Recommended Posts

i would use standard tree cutting signs while taking the trees down and then for spreying i would use a couple weed sprsating in progress signs while spraying and then once finnished i would place caution notices either at every stump if they are spead out or place them on stakes allong the boundary . also i would chech the data sheet on the glypho to see what time scales ect are reccomended

I find that with Glyphosate (depending on humidity, wind, etc) it is rain fast with an hour or so when it is put on neat. When its sprayed on it take minutes to go rain fast.

With regards to the spraying. I used to drive quad bikes down footpaths in all sorts of places. Busy paths empty alleyways with people walking directly behind me and passing by with pets with my boom on. I've had people stop me and kick off saying their dogs been ill but all I can say is it's pretty harmless and it wont kill your pets! We only used weedspraying signs stuck on the back of the bikes. All we needed.

 

I'd agree with the disc slicing and then filling the stump. Would create better conditions for it to soak in.

 

 

For rain fastness in 10-15 minutes. We use a sticking/wetting agent called headland guard pro. Good stuff. Needs very low amounts to be at the correct concentration.

Sorry mate, but this is more or less the exact wording from the campains in Sweden when environmetactivists were trying to stop the use of DDT and Agent Orange... They were both widely used in swedish forestry up to late 70ies. It was called differently depending of mixture, Agent white, blue, grren or orange depending on amount of Tetrachlorodibenzodioxin and Dichlorodibenzodioxin. One guy even drank some in front of journalists,to prove it was harmless. No one could explain why foresters had trouble to make their wifes pregnant...or the ones who did, got funnylooking kids...:001_huh::confused1::001_rolleyes: Glyphosate might be the next one...
