Cotton farmer awarded $470,000 against spray drift damages

A payment of almost $470,000 has been conferred on a cotton farmer from southern Queensland by the Supreme Court in Brisbane, for damages encountered by him on account of spray drift.

Supreme Court, ruled against, Meandarra Aerial and Lachlan Hill, who in order to get rid of some of the wattle trees, showered chemical from an airplane, on a property of about 20 kilometres from the farmers' property.

Ash Geldard, the Condamine cotton grower says that, while he had to be bereaved of his entire produce, he expects that, the case under discussion, comes out as a landmark case to serve as a precedent in the State.

He did mention that, certainly as people are getting more and more vigilant, majority of them, most of the times, endeavour to be precise and not to get in to the other side of defaulter's line.

Gradually, the incidences of spray drift are decreasing and probably this would further continue to lessen, in the times to come, he said.
