    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    Guys, it’s that time of year again. I’m at home today and started getting some nose and throat irritation. Looked outside and the boom is meters from my house...on a windy day and I’m down wind. The bloke was racing through that field. Did it in minutes. Loads of drift. I’m guessing he didn’t...

    Nobody will tell me who is renting that field. They just keep saying it's only fungicides and safe if it gets sprayed on our garden again.

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    It is Wheat and it's been sprayed 3x (that we saw) over a week, over that period of very hot weather, unless some of that is Water of course? Seems to have stopped now. They have planted right to the edge of the field, next to a small dyke and a road, like I say the boom went over into the...

    I think I may do....I've just watched it back and he's driving pretty fast with quite a tail of mist....obviously the camera didn't pick up as much as we could see.

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    Thank you, it's very hard to describe the smell, to me slightly clinical smelling? It opened up my airways and caused me to bring up fluid (sorry tmi). A bit like when you go into those steam rooms at the swimming pool- Chlorine/Eucalyptus. Bit of a mucous membrane irritant I would say. It...

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    It could be pollen I guess but it really did sting the lining of my nose. I don't usually suffer with hay fever. It was from the May bank holiday. We had all that lovely weather and the sprayer turned up around lunch time. Then it was 2-3 days later and again at the weekend. It was after all of...

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    I did get better quickly yes, just the initial irritating symptoms. Lasted a couple of days. We went back to the new house to do some gardening and they turned up again. Think we had a total of 3x but on two occasions we jumped back into the car and left. Then my other half said they turned up a...

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    I'm sure there are people like that out there but I feel if someone has genuine concerns then it would be kind to ease their concerns and answer questions/work together on this. We've all got to share this planet after all. Farmers do a wonderful job and are much needed of course but remember...

    Here to learn. I can assure you that I'm not a writer but now I'm starting to think I could be seen as you think it's a ''set up''. I'm joking of course. Thank you for your input.

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    Great info, thank you. If I can find out who he is I will have a chat with him about the drift and mention the above. The nozzles he is using look like they make a fine mist which swirls into the air and like I said, he seemed to be going a little fast. I hear what you're saying as mycotoxins...

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    There really should be more clarity. Manufacturers do need to put it out there that they're safe and show us proof. I did look online and I found some horrible info, fear mongering stuff. I'm not sure where it has come from, what studies were done and if they could prove the damage to life...

    And rightly so, such rude behaviour on their part.

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    I'm here to learn. I'm here because I don't want to cause trouble for our local farmers. I have a great respect for the farming community. There are some right a-holes out there, you're right. We're business owners and we've met all sorts of people. Some with nothing better to do in life...
