New South Wales growers: do you spray pesticides on other banana farms for a fee or reward?
Even if it’s just your costs covered, the Environmental Protection Authority requires that you hold an appropriate license, available from their website.
While you do not need a license to spray on your own farm, or if you’re an employee paid to do so, you do need one for ‘ground application work’ on other private land in the state.
Some other exemptions apply, including using pesticides on land belonging to a member of your family or undertaking bush care.
