Fireweed help

Hi , we have 25 acres . We have a 4 acres paddock that is higher up on the land that has fireweed in flower about 10cm tall it is separated by a 15 meter strip of bushland and only very small sparse fireweed in the lower paddock that we have removed by hand. What is the best way to treat it and can I spray it with a backpack sprayer ? Thanks

Hi Karinya,

Welcome to the small farms forum and thanks for the question. 

If the plants are sparse you could spot spray them with herbicide, if there are too many plants to spot spray you will need to use a boom spray. Spot spraying is definately easier then pulling the plants out.

Below is a link to a previous thread regarding fireweed that you may also find helpful

Charlie
