Sustainable chemical use

Our industry approach

Almond growers protect their crops from insects, fungi, mites, nematodes and competing weeds that can affect the amount of high quality Australian almonds our customers expect and demand. Crop protection products, are an important feature of an integrated pest and disease management program, making it possible for almond growers to produce safe, high quality, affordable and abundant nuts that are competitive on world markets. The ABA has a chemical group made up of growers, marketers, chemical companies and advisors to ensure effective and safe chemicals are available for use in almond orchards while minimising impacts on the environment and preventing harmful residues.
