MT07029 - Managing Pesticide Access in
This project was funded by Horticulture Australia Ltd to coordinate and consolidate the minor-use permit for all of horticulture. The project involved liaising with horticultural industry bodies, researchers and advisors to determine their pesticide requirements and coordinate any data that needed to be generated to ensure maximum efficiency. Residue data generation was contracted with qualified field researchers and analytical laboratories to ensure that they completed the designated task allotted to them with respect to data generation. Minor-use permit applications were written and submitted to the Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority for permit approval. Many industries conducted pest management analyses using SARP. This report summarises the processes undertaken with industry and the applications submitted in the project.
