Minimising spray drift risks
The Code of Practice for Summer Weed Control is designed to provide a standard for the safe and effective application of herbicides for summer weed control and to minimise the risk of off-target damage to grapevines and other susceptible plants from droplet and vapour drift of herbicides.
Grain residues and contaminants
Growers play a critical role in protecting the reputation of the Australian grain industry by managing the risk of chemical residues. Growers help protect market access through responsible use of chemicals, including adhering to withholding periods, label instructions, application rates and safe operating procedures. All domestic and export markets for Australian grain have a low or no tolerance level for chemical residues and contaminants.
National Residue Survey
The National Residue Survey (NRS) is part of an Australian Government and industry strategy to minimise chemical residues and environmental contaminants in Australian food products. In doing so, NRS programs support primary producers and commodity marketers by confirming Australia’s status as a producer of ‘clean’ food and facilitating access to key domestic and export markets.
