Aerial Operation To Be Completed Today
Aerial Operation To Be Completed Today – Wednesday 23 April
The latest general aerial operation to wipe out the painted apple moth will be completed today. Approximately 5,000 hectares were completed yesterday. The operation will resume soon after first light this morning. It will take approximately 2 hours to complete the remaining 3,000 hectares, and the operation should be over well before 10.00am – weather permitting.
As it is school holidays, the usual ‘no flight times’ that cater for children travelling to school will not apply.
The public can call the free phone 0800 96 96 96 or visit www.maf.govt.nz/painted-apple-moth for general information about the programme. People can also listen to Newstalk ZB (1080 AM), 531 pi (531 AM), Chinese Radio (AM 990) and Radio Korea (1386 AM) for updates.
