Notice of herbicide use at the Cavendah Sportsfields.
Signs will notify the public.
We need all to be asking why the Steam weeding machine council purchased is not in use. Although the above herbicide is listed as low toxicity to humans it is a water contaminant.
I grew up in a region most roadsides were edged with sedges, common sense.
Dicamba, another new favourite and used by our Council is already proving another serious ecological negative in the USA.
Farmers in Arkansas, Tennessee and Missouri are reporting extensive crop damage from dicamba, the herbicide being used on Monsanto’s latest GE soy and cotton.
Particularly prone to drift into neighboring fields, dicamba is toxic to broadleaf plants like fruit, nuts, vegetables — and non-GE soy.
Even USDA scientists warned that pesticide drift would be a problem with these seeds. It’s time for the agency to reverse its decision and pull Monsanto’s “Xtend” seeds off the market.
