North East Aerial Fertliser Program

September 20, 2016

HVP Plantations wish to advise of upcoming fertiliser operations in the plantations in North East Victoria. They will be occurring in the Stanley, Ovens, Merriang, Warrenbayne and Shelley Plantation areas.

This operation will involve the application of granular fertiliser to established stands of various ages. A helicopter will be used to accurately broadcast the fertiliser. The operation is scheduled to commence in Mid-October and take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete.

HVP will install on ground signage during the operation to highlight the specific area that will be treated. Buffer zones are in place to ensure the operation is safe and contained. Buffers of 200m are applied between the operation and residential dwellings, and 20m between the operation and protected waterways and adjoining properties.

This operation is being undertaken to correct nutrient deficiencies and to enhance the growth of the plantations. The products being applied are common agricultural fertilisers, which include Urea, Ammonium Sulphate, Super Phosphate, DAP, and Sulphur.

The use of fertilisers in Victoria is in accordance with the Agriculture and Veterinary Chemicals (Control of Use) (Fertilisers) Regulations 2005. Further information can be found at
