Farm Chemical User

Mixing chemicalPlant protection products have delivered great benefits to Victorian vegetable growers but misuse of these products could cause problems with neighbours, the environment, people and animal health and export trade.

All users of plant protection products in Australia must be able to demonstrate they can use these products Safely and Effectively.  

A 2 day Farm Chemical User Course provides this qualification.

In addition, Victorian growers require an Agricultural Chemical Users Permit (ACUP), to purchase or apply ‘restricted use’ agricultural chemical products.

All growers need to keep up to date with changes in legislation, labelling and safe work practices and many QA auditors will ask growers to complete a ˝ day ‘refresher’ course every 5 years.

This training is available through many providers including,
DPI-Vic AGTRAIN, AusChem and local TAFE colleges.
