Future use of crop chemicals to be discussed at research forum

A national research conference is to explore the challenges faced by Australia’s grain, pulse and oilseed farmers in dealing with increased rates of crop resistance to the use of common agricultural chemicals.

The three farm industries are worth $18 billion annually to the economy and provide more than $200 million in grants to support agricultural research projects.

Grains industry researchers have organised the 2018 Crop Protection Forum, which will be held on 6 December in Adelaide, the South Australian capital. It will feature speakers from federal research agencies, state government primary industry departments, rural R&D projects and agronomy services.
