Agrichemical pest management needs and priorities workshop
AUSVEG Agrichemical Pest Management Needs and Priorities Project Coordinator Patrick Arratia is working with growers and stakeholders in the Australian vegetable industry to establish a prioritisation process for agrichemical access.
As part of this work, Patrick is visiting growers to discuss issues in disease, pest and weed management for vegetable crops grown in Australia.
The prioritisation process will help develop an understanding of the Australian vegetable industry’s chemical needs, which will result in a greater ability to drive more crops onto on-label use rather than minor use permits.
The first workshop for this strategic levy investment project, which is part of the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund, will take place in the Werribee and Geelong region:
Time/date: 2:00pm, Wednesday 20 September 2017
Location: Wyndham Cache, 243 K Road, Werribee South VIC
If you would like to attend to this workshop, or if you have pest and disease issues you would like to report, please contact Patrick on 03 9882 0277 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
