Got the exact same thing happening here.lots of cracks have appeared on top of banks in last 6 wet months and I’m sure some will end up in the water.hopefully when it dries out the roots of the grass and foliage will hold it together.can’t see what to do apart from plant more bush type plants really.

  • Grow competitive crops
  • Prioritise pre-emergence applications
  • Stack pre-em herbicides
