National Residue Survey (Final report)

Summary

Funding for the collection and analysis of hay samples has been sourced from RIRDC and Dairy Australia. Funding for this project has been committed under the Fodder Crops Program Chemical Residue Audit for Export Hay (ID PRJ007369). Samples (80) have been collected and sent to the nominated laboratory for testing. These samples are being tested for four different screens of chemicals by a laboratory considered proficient under DAFF’s National Residue Survey program. The Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA) has been tasked with coordinating the management of the program. Due to staff changes, AFIA does not currently have the human resources to complete the final report on the residue analysis. Accordingly this consultancy is proposed to complete the reportwriting component of this project in a timely manner and retain the preexisting industry communication objectives of the project.
