This project was conducted to assist in the horticultural industries access to pesticides necessary for sustainable production, through extensive consultation with relevant stakeholders. Existing project selection, data generation and permit application systems were reviewed and refined to ensure that the evaluation process is as efficient as possible. Consolidation of existing permits for same pesticides across horticultural industries has taken place to improve the permit process. The report recommends the continuation of such processes and renewal of permits being undertaken in a timely manner, and transferral of the permit holder role to HAL.
