Economic activity attributable to crop protection products

    Posted 21 November 2013

    This Deloitte Access Economics study, commissioned by CropLife Australia, details a conservative analysis of the positive impacts of the crop protection industry on the Australian economy; not only in raising crop values, but as an important job creator. The data presented in this landmark study demonstrates the crucial role of crop protection products in the current and continued success of Australian agriculture, as well as the importance of the plant science industry to the Australian economy as a whole. This is particularly significant in a public policy sense as chemical crop protection products are some of the most tightly regulated products in Australia; undergoing a rigorous registration process before they can be developed, sold or used.
