  • Project stage: Current

  • Project start date: Sunday, November 5, 2023

  • Project completion date: Saturday, June 14, 2025

  • National Priority: GIN-High quality product and sustainable production systems


AgriFutures Australia on behalf of the Australian Ginger Industry Association (AGIA) is seeking the continued access to the selective agricultural insecticides, Coragen® Insecticide (chlorantraniliprole) for the management of fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) and other lepidopteran larvae in field grown ginger crops. These pests impact the productivity of crops and the quality of the plant to produce rhizomes. Management of the pests will increase financial opportunities for ginger growers.


This project will:

  • Conduct field residue trials.
  • Pay AgriSolutions Australia for their sample analysis
  • Prepare and submit minor-use permit applications to APVMA.
  • Correspond and manage any issues raised by APVMA during their assessment process.
  • Notify AgriFutures and AGIA once a permit is issued.

This project will manage the preparation and submission of the permit application and ongoing discussions with APVMA until the permit is issued.
