Australian industry wants action on illegal pesticide use

The Australian industry association, CropLife Australia, has called for a crack-down on illegal pesticides and greater harmonisation and enforcement of state controls on pesticide use. "There is little use in having a regulatory system that assesses and tests legitimate, registered products, while allowing cheap, untested, illegal products to cross our borders and put our farmers, environment and food supply at risk," says CropLife Australia chief executive officer Matthew Cossey. "Similarly, there is little use in having strict instructions for the safe use of approved chemical products if those rules are not enforced consistently and effectively."
