GPA is working with the National Working Party on Pesticide Application as it considers options to respond to proposed spray application label changes by the APVMA. GPA will attend a meeting in Canberra on 19 April 2011 to appoint a new Executive Committee for the NWPPA as well as working through the investment strategy for determine the most appropriate methods to reduce off target drift.
In October 2010, the National Working Party on Pesticide Application (NWPPA) engaged Plant Health Australia (PHA) (with funds provided by GRDC), to provide an independent report to the interim Executive Committee regarding the spray drift risk assessment of pesticides. PHA presented the draft response plan to the NWPPA ( APVMA Spray Drift Risk Assessment Report (1.8 Mb)). The report provides an overview of the current status of the proposed spray application label changes by the APVMA, an analysis of the possible response options available to stakeholders across short and longer time frames, and a proposed model for stakeholder participation and investment.
