Weed Control

Weed Control

Posted on May 23rd, 2019

Please be advised the Town of Edson will be spraying for weeds starting Friday (May 24th, 2019). This will be done in most Town of Edson park spaces, including RCMP Centennial Park. Please keep off the sprayed areas, especially pets and small children, as the herbicide takes about 8-10 hours to dry completely.

The turf herbicide we will be spraying is called Nufarm Trillion. It is designed to control noxious weeds that we are mandated to control. It will be mixed at a ratio as to not harm the turf or trees. We will only be spraying public parks and some trail areas that are showing signs of weed infestation. The spraying will be completed either by hand spot spraying or UTV mounted spray booms that are located quite low to the ground surface as to ensure there is no drift. Green Oasis signs will be placed where the spraying has occurred.
