This report outlines the residue trials conducted to supply data to support the application of permits for various pesticides in fresh herbs.

This report has been prepared for the herb industry as an overview of the project. Detailed field and analytical reports have also been prepared for each individual trial and these will be used by the AHSIA to support the permit applications submitted to the APVMA.

A wide variety of herbs are currently being produced in Australia by AHSIA members. All the herb crops are classified as minor crops by the APVMA. There are a wide range of pest, disease and weed problems in herb crops, however, there are very few pesticides available to be used in the overall integrated management of these problems.
