The Report of the PIRSA buffers working group 2015-16 () sets out the findings of the Working Group.
As well as the proposal to involve farm sector professionals more widely in land use planning assessments, the Working Group has developed a draft Information Sheet targeting key stakeholder groups and made a series of other recommendations relating to matters such as:
- The urgency surrounding recognition of drift reduction technologies in the APVMA's spray drift policy and product label directions that enable corresponding reductions in mandatory downwind no-spray zones.
- The need to consider issues identified in this report during work currently underway to implement the Planning Development and Infrastructure Act, 2016.
- The development of decision-support tools to assist chemical users in increasingly diverse farming landscapes.
