WALGA ‘Weed Management’ forum presentation
Our Director, Chemical Review, Rod Edmundson, recently gave a presentation at the WA Local Government Association (WALGA) Weed Management forum.
Rod’s presentation detailed our role in the regulation of pesticides in Australia up to the point of sale and the important distinction between ‘hazard versus risk’ in chemical assessment. Rod also spoke about our assessment of glyphosate and provided an update on our approach to spray drift management consultation that included changes to 2,4-D labels.
More than 120 delegates attended the forum, with representatives from local and state government, environmental consultants and community groups.
