Asulam restrictions eased for 2020


Emergency authorisation for the use of asulam for bracken control was granted for the 2020 season but only for aerial application, with new restrictions on the required buffer area against watercourse.

This has now been reviewed. The increased buffer zone of 90m from a watercourse remains in place, however ground-based application on land in agri-environment schemes or designated for conservation is now permitted.
