Spray Sense is a series of leaflets which focus on providing up-to-date information on a range of pesticide issues. Everyone who is involved in the manufacture, sale, distribution, use and provision of advice is encouraged to use this information to apply pesticides more effectively.
The Spray Sense series was first developed as an initiative of the Pesticide Project Team, comprising NSW Agricultural Horticultural extension officers and industry representatives located in the Greater Sydney Basin. The series has been expanded over the years to take into account new issues and now has a State-wide focus.
The series is also available in booklet form.
The leaflets missing from the series below are currently under review and will be replaced soon.
