Crop grouping guidance document

APVMA have finalised the guidance document on the use of crop grouping in regulatory risk assessments.

Crop grouping gives growers better access to chemicals for minor crops without the need to get a permit as, in many cases, minor crops can be included on the label. In addition, the cost to industry is reduced by removing the need to generate data across multiple crops within the same crop group.
