In this global scan we look at some of the changes affecting the integrated crop protection tools available to vegetable growers by examining what is happening elsewhere, globally and in other sectors.

Based on international developments, we can expect continued deregistrations and restrictions on allowable synthetic chemical use that will affect vegetable production in Australia.

This global scan describes restrictions/deregistrations that have occurred internationally and how the industry has dealt with them. It examines some of the reasons for restrictions and makes suggestions about how vegetable growers can prepare for possible changes in Australia.
