Ginger Chemical Minor Use Permit maintenance and research
Ginger is predominantly grown in Australia in the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay–Burnett regions of Queensland. The area under ginger production is relatively small, and this small market limits the number and scope of registered pesticides available to growers. To gain access to essential chemical control options, the industry commonly needs to rely on Minor Use Permits (MUPs) granted by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Association (APVMA). The lapse of current MUPs for products regularly required by the ginger industry would have a significant impact on the industry and the potential to cause significant crop losses.
This project aims to maintain and update existing MUPs as well as investigate options for new products for the ginger industry, as part of the AgriFutures Ginger Program.
