In April, Welsh Water is launching their 2017 PestSmart scheme. The scheme is to help farmers in targeted catchment areas across Wales.
The scheme involves the Free Weed Wiper Trial. This trial provides an environmentally friendly way to control common rush and other weeds through the free use of weed wiper machinery from April to October. The trial also provides free guidance for long term rush control.
Farmers can also access free pesticide and herbicide disposal that includes out of date or unlicensed products.
Funding is limited. Registration window is open from 3rd to 28th April. To register, visit www.dwrcymru.com/pestsmart or call 01286 832964.
