The generation of pesticide residue, efficacy and crop safety data is required to support label registration and minor use permit applications made to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) that, when approved, provides access to safe and effective chemicals for the management of pests, weeds and diseases.

As part of an ongoing Hort Innovation-funded project, the APVMA has approved the Amistar Xtra label extension which includes use in sweet corn against Turcica Leaf Blight, Common Rust & Polysora Rust.

The efficacy and residue data was generated under Generation of data for pesticide applications in horticulture crops 2018 (ST17000) – a strategic levy investment under the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund.
