Fodder Safe is an online chemical recording system for the Australian export hay industry. The tool is simple to use with inbuilt rigor that allows hay growers and exporters to ensure that fodder for export is suitable for export customers. The system is managed, maintained and supported by Agsmart on behalf of participating exporters, who own and fund the program through AgriFutures Australia. This project is a continuation of PRJ-010570.
