Member services

Industry advocacy

On our members’ behalf CropLife works with governments, farmer groups, CRCs, other industry associations and stakeholders interested in the future of food and farming, to maintain the benefits that flow to the Australian community from a strong and responsible plant science industry.

We proactively monitor political issues and bureaucratic processes that may affect our industry and present policy solutions to ministers and government officials on issues affecting our industry. When it is needed, we take strong advocacy positions in public forums including the media to correct inaccuracies and make rational, logical and science-based contributions to public discourse on behalf of our industry.

We listen to our members to ensure we remain in touch with industry concerns and actively engage members while formulating our positions and policies.

Keeping members informed

Recognising that our members value fast, accurate and useful information, we update them regularly on industry developments; provide them with intelligence on political developments; provide forums for discussing issues with regulators; and provide regular briefs on our activities as well as broader industry news.

We also provide networking opportunities for our members to ensure industry remains informed, focused and united.

Promoting stewardship

Our members adopt and promote ethical and responsible practices from discovery and development of a crop protection or biotechnology product through to its use and final disposal.

CropLife, and its member companies comply with the International Code of Conduct for the Distribution and Use of Pesticides. This code of conduct, and CropLife’s own Code of Conduct describe obligations our members must meet in managing agricultural chemical products. These obligations include responsible management through innovation, discovery, research, transport, distribution and use.

Through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Agsafe, CropLife oversees the accreditation and training of farm chemical distributors as well as delivery of the Industry Waste Reduction Scheme.

Visit the Stewardship page to read more about these activities.
