Australian industry lauds call to ease regulatory burdens

The Australian industry association, CropLife Australia, has welcomed the findings of a government agency report highlighting certain regulatory burdens affecting the agricultural sector. Among the issues addressed by the Australian Bureau for Agricultural Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) are access to pesticides for minor uses, inconsistencies in control of use regulations and the commercialisation of genetically modified crops. CropLife Australia has been calling for the government to address a number of inconsistencies in the regulation of agricultural chemicals and GM crops. "ABARES has confirmed that there are simple, effective ways available to address these inconsistencies, which are damaging Australia's agricultural productivity," says the industry group's chief executive officer, Matthew Cossey.
