Generation of residue data for pesticide minor use permit applications in horticulture crops 2015/16 (ST15027)

Key research provider: Eurofins
Publication date: Monday, November 26, 2018

What was it all about?

The generation of pesticide residue, efficacy and crop safety data is required to support label registration and minor use permit applications made to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) which, when approved, provide access to safe and effective chemicals for the management of pests, weeds and diseases.

This investment was responsible for producing the data required to support a range of registration and permit applications across a host of horticulture industries. It consisted of 19 studies for crops including bananas, olives, papaya, rubus species, stone fruit, snow peas, sugar snap peas, green beans, carrots, capsicums, cucumbers, processing tomatoes, blueberries, mandarins and tangelos.

Its data supported 19 permit renewal applications to the APVMA, as detailed in the project’s final research report.


This project was funded through Hort Innovation using levies from multiple industries, as well as grant funds from the Australian Government's Access to Industry Uses of Agricultural and Veterinary (AgVet) Chemicals program
