Vegetable Strategic Agrichemical Review Process reports
These SARP reports are funded by Hort Innovation to investigate pest problems, agrichemical usage and pest management alternatives for horticulture industries across Australia. The results provide a clear view of gaps in existing pest control options, and are intended to assist each industry with agrichemical selection and usage into the future – that is, they provide direction for the industry to pursue for chemical registrations with agrichemical companies, or minor use permits with the APVMA.
The current SARP reports for the vegetable industry are available to download here. They were released in 2014.
- Beans and peas
- Brassica leafy
- Silverbeet and spinach
- Snow peas (sugar snap peas)
- Spring onion shallot
This report is not a comprehensive assessment of all pests and control methods used in the industry, but attempts to prioritise the major problems.
