PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project provides the Australian horticulture industry with key information regarding domestic and international pesticide regulation.

A component of this is the production of Ag Chemical Updates, which provide information on any developments in regulatory oversight of relevant chemicals. They are an opportunity for industry to consider and develop responses to issues arising from actions proposed that may impact on grower ability to access and use needed pesticides.

To assist strategy planning with respect to future pest management options, the project also develops regulatory risk assessments. These highlight potential threats to agrichemicals currently approved for the management of pests and diseases in various crops, as well as current initiatives aimed at addressing identified pest management deficiencies.
