The season for the use of Asulam started on 1st July and runs until 16th September, with a use up period until 31st October.
July and August is the peak period for controlling bracken, by any means.
Indications are that the conditions are favouring bracken growth this year. It is likely that this will result in faster rates of encroachment from existing bracken beds into new areas.
The documents for the Emergency Authorisation to allow the use of Asulam during the 2020 have been submitted. It is possible that the application will be considered during a meeting at the end of September.
