Report of the PIRSA buffers working group 2015-16

The Report of the PIRSA buffers working group 2015-16 (PDF 722.2 KB) 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; and
  • the development of decision-support tools to assist chemical users in increasingly diverse farming landscapes.
