Aug. 23, 2019 | 5 Min read
Grain Producers Australia Chairman, Mr Andrew Weidemann, advises industry that the APVMA has issued a permit for ‘Pre-Harvest Dessication and Spray Topping of Weeds in Specified Barley (Except Malting Barley) - Permit number – PER82594 (v2)’. The permit expiry is 30 April 2020.


The permit extends the practice of late-season barley application on barley (feed only) from the original permit issued on 2 November 2016. The permit will allow grain producers and traders to put appropriate plans in place for the 19/20 harvest.

Producers are reminded of the importance of stewardship of pesticide products, including glyphosate. The conditions of use, directions and restraints of the permit must be followed. Declarations of use may also be required and complied with as directed by buyers and traders.

Grain Producers Australia would like to thank the APVMA for the timely review and approval of this permit.
