Spray Safe Management Strategy
The purpose of the SOS strategic plan is to capture the agreed approach and outline the forward plan for SOS Macquarie to enable better spray practices in the
Macquarie Valley. It is designed as a set of actions that will bring about practice change in the Macquarie Valley and go on to be used as a template for other irrigation valleys throughout agricultural areas of NSW.
The strategy captures:
- Why we care - we want to see sustainable cropping and a safe community.
- What we do - we engage with the agricultural community to increase awareness and change practice.
- How we do it - our activities are designed to engage and educate to bring about improvements in on-target application efficiency that will reduce spray drift.
The strategy addresses short, medium and long-term goals over a five-year period, with funding available in the first instance to address the short-term objectives.
Thank you to the organisations that helped us shape this strategy through our workshop in Dubbo in June and further consultation on the draft document.
