2010 October: Esperance Council may reverse summer 2,4-D decision

ESPERANCE Shire Council looks set to reverse last month’s decision not to grant licences to farmers for the use of 2,4-D High Volatile Ester (HVE) use during the summer. (HVE is authorised by Esperance Council for farmers to use during winter months, but has been seen as being too volatile during summer as it burns off into the atmosphere in extreme heat.)
