Submission in Response to Draft Agricultural Chemicals (Control of Use) Regulations – Tasmania

    20 July 2011

    CropLife supports the appropriate regulation of agricultural chemical products to ensure they can be safely used by farmers and other land managers as a valuable tool to control pests, weeds and diseases. These products are critical tools in maintaining farmers’ capacity to provide nutritious, healthy, abundant, affordable and safe food for Australian and export markets. CropLife is, however, concerned that the draft regulations as currently written will significantly hinder the capacity of chemical users and other land managers to control pests, weeds and diseases.
