Aerial Fertilisation of SW Plantations

HVP Plantations wish to advise of upcoming aerial fertiliser operations in the plantations of the South West District of Victoria.

These operations will involve foliar applications of select micro-nutrients within HVP’s Rennick and Kentbruck plantations during October 2017.

Plantations are generally only fertilised once or twice in their 30 year cycle because they only remove low levels of nutrient from the site.

Our contractor is an experienced operator in this type of work. The helicopter to be used is equipped with state-of-the-art spraying and satellite guidance equipment specially designed for accurate placement of agricultural products. No flying operations when the helicopter is loaded with product will occur over private property. Adequate buffer strips and strict operational control, particularly with respect to weather conditions, will be observed throughout the operation.

For further information, or to provide feedback, please contact HVP Plantations Ph: 08 8724 6700 or
