Set your industry's pest and disease priorities
As part of the Strategic Agrichemical Review Process (SARP) that is taking place in 2020, surveys are being conducted to identify pest and disease priorities for several Australian horticultural industries. You can take part in your industry’s survey by clicking on the links below.
The surveys will identify diseases, insect pests and weeds of major concern. Against these threats, available registered or permitted pesticides will be evaluated for overall suitability in terms of integrated pest management (IPM), resistance, residues, withholding period, efficacy, trade, human safety and environmental issues. Where tools are unavailable or unsuitable, the process aims to identify potential future solutions.
Prioritisation of the major pests into high, moderate and low categories will identify industry priorities and help determine the highest priority gaps in current pest control strategies.
