Aerial Operation for Tuesday 30 September, 2003

Monday 29 September, 2003


Decision will be made Tomorrow Morning regarding Aerial Operation for Tuesday 30 September, 2003.


A decision will be made first thing tomorrow morning (Tuesday 30 September), as to whether or not the current aerial operation to wipe out painted apple moth will get underway on Tuesday.

Persistent wind and rain have lead to delays of nearly two weeks for the current aerial treatment. The weather forecast for tomorrow indicates a small window in which the operation may be able to be carried out.

Conditions will be closely monitored and a decision will be announced early tomorrow morning.

“Ongoing delays caused by the weather are frustrating for everyone and require both the public and our operational team to constantly adjust their schedules. We are doing everything possible to get the current treatment underway and are very appreciative of the community’s patience” says Robert Isbister, General Manager painted apple moth.

During the winter months, aerial operations are carried out in 5 small target areas covering a total of less than 900 hectares. The public can visit www.maf.govt.nz/paintedapplemoth to see a map of the winter target areas and for general information about the programme.
People can also listen to More FM (91.8FM) or Newstalk ZB (1080AM) for status updates. Up-to-date information is also available on freephone 0800 96 96 96.
