Help AUSVEG develop pest, disease and weed solutions through the 2019 Crop-Specific Pest Survey
To ensure that the agrichemical needs of the vegetable sector are accurately recorded and understood, AUSVEG is coordinating the Vegetable Agrichemical Pest Management Needs and Priorities (VG16060) project, a strategic levy investment under the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund.
The project’s objective is to coordinate vegetable industry agrichemical pest needs by identifying and prioritising potential gaps through implementation of an effective prioritisation process for the vegetable industry.
As part of this project, a Crop-Specific Surveys have been developed by AUSVEG and Hort Innovation to capture the vegetable industry’s main pests, disease and weed issues.
We ask growers and agronomists to get involved and to please take the time (10 min/survey) to fill in these crop-specific surveys. Pest priorities identified will inform industry actions at the annual AgChem Collaborative Forum, aid in updating industry Strategic Agrichemical Review Process documents (SARPs) and identify potential solutions to address these gaps.

The priority agrichemical gaps identified will inform industry actions at the annual AgChem Collaborative Forum, aid in updating industry Strategic Agrichemical Review Process documents (SARPs) and identify potential solutions to address these gaps.
