New method for Pond Apple control

A new technology was trialed by the team at Jaragun to treat Pond Apple infestations at Eubenangee Swamp National Park. The team used ‘Injecta’ applicators, a relatively new technology developed by BioHerbicides Australia, for stem injection of chemical capsules directly into the tree trunk. This unique product kills woody weeds in situ without the need for manual clearing or chemical spray. Jaragun has adopted Injecta applicators as a targeted control method to reduce environmental impact, involving less chemical exposure to native vegetation, animals and humans.
