Washdown Guidelines for Weed and Disease Control - Edition 1These guidelines establish a standard for washing down machinery, vehicles and other equipment to minimise the risk of spreading weed seeds, some insects and plant pathogens. Failure to wash down can result in crop losses or permanent environmental damage, often incurring substantial cost to the landowner or manager.
Written by Tim Rudman (Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment), David Tucker (Forestry Tasmania) and Doug French (Agricultural Contractors Association of Tasmania) with input from councils, industry and State government.
