Australian Walnut Industry Association symposium
This month, our Director, Residues and Trade, James Deller, attended the Australian Walnut Industry Association’s symposium and farm walk in Echuca, northern Victoria.
The symposium was attended by industry members including walnut growers from Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and South Australia. James gave a presentation about the APVMA, including our role in how and why pesticides are registered, what Maximum Residue Limits are, and how to apply for a permit.
Symposium attendants were particularly interested in the benefits of our permit to label and crop grouping projects, and how these projects will lead to more registered uses of agricultural chemicals in the walnut industry.
