Generation of data for pesticide permit applications in horticulture 2022 (ST22001, ST22003 and ST22004)

Key research provider: Agreco, Eurofins Agroscience Services and Kalyx

What's it all about?

The generation of pesticide residue, efficacy and crop safety data is required to support label registration and minor use permit applications and renewals made to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).

These multi-industry projects are generating the data needed to support a range of existing minor use permits across various horticulture crops to ensure growers have continued access to safe and effective chemicals for managing pests, weeds, and diseases.

Specific industries that will benefit from ST22001, ST22003 and ST22004’s data generation work include avocado, citrus, custard apple, fresh potato, lychee, macadamia, mango, olive, onion, papaya, passionfruit, persimmon, pineapple, raspberry and blackberry, strawberry, sweetpotato, and vegetable.


This multi-industry project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Avocado, Citrus, Custard Apple, Lychee, Macadamia, Mango, Olive, Onion, Papaya, Passionfruit, Persimmon, Pineapple, Potato - Fresh, Raspberry and Blackberry, Strawberry, Sweetpotato, and Vegetable Funds.
