Rush Control Information Session

04 Oct 2023


Wednesday 4th October 2023 at 7:00pm

Water is a resource that connects us all. CAFRE, in conjunction with NI Water, is holding an online information session on Soft Rush control and water quality for farmers and landowners in the Camowen catchment on Wednesday 4th October 2023 at 7.00pm. The Camowen catchment covers the area between Omagh and Pomeroy, extending down to Ballymackilroy. Whilst the event is aimed at those farming in the Camowen catchment it is open to everyone – anyone with an interest in the topic can attend.

The online event will give information on different methods of Rush control and their effectiveness with a particular emphasis on the benefits of weed wiping with glyphosate versus boom spraying with MCPA.  The results of recent field trials will also be discussed.  Northern Ireland Water staff will give an insight into the water quality of the Camowen catchment, the treatment process at the drinking water extraction plant and the costs around removing MCPA from the water.

There will be an opportunity to submit questions online during the event.
