Weed Spraying


  • Loading a helicopter with chemicals for Weed Spraying
  • Weed Spraying - setting the GPS system
  • Filling the helicopter spray tanks
  • Checking the spray tanks before weed spraying

Specialised agricultural Global Positioning Systems (GPS) installed in each helicopter enable us to accurately and very efficiently, apply weed control to a specific area. By pre-mapping the area, the required amount of chemical can be accurately determined.

We have a extensive knowledge in spraying all sorts of weeds including:

  • Gorse
  • Ragwort
  • Thistles
  • Broom
  • Blackberry
  • Scrub
  • Buttercup

Weed and Feed

Solve two problems in one go by applying weed control and fertiliser together. Further more, by using a special process, the extra dry matter produced will actually cover the cost of application.

In addition to boom spray gear, PHL have spot spraying equipment for treating pampas and other similar weeds.
