  • Why Organic Food on the Shelves is Suspicious   2019-05-06

    Organic farming attempts to do away with chemical pesticides and chemical fertilisers. However, certified organic fertilisers such as compost and animal manure have very low nutrient content compared to chemical ones. Certified organic or bio-pesticides are nowhere near as well researched as the chemical ones. Additionally, they are low in performance to treat the huge hectarage of crops grown. This is especially so in the tropics where we have year-round hot and humid conditions that allow pests, weeds and diseases to thrive and reproduce rapidly.

  • Australian TV report on 2,4-D containing excessive dioxin levels may be a "double-edge sword"   2013-08-13

    On July 22, Australian ABC's 4 Corners program reported their investigation on elevated levels of dangerous dioxins in a generic version of 2,4-D. Whoever endorsed it or rejoices over this 4 Corners program has apparently no understanding of the terms "double-edge sword" and "back-firing". They obviously did not think it through to see what the larger consequences it will lead to and the implications for the industry as a whole.

  • Chinese agchem manufacturers going downstream in international markets   2012-10-19

    The world of generic pesticides belongs to the Chinese manufacturers because they manufacture the widest range of products as well as having most of the key raw materials available locally. They need to go down the supply chain in overseas markets.

  • Anti-dumping Duty Application on Chinese-made Glyphosate Formulations Exported to Australia Unjustified   2012-03-26

    Imposing an anti-dumping duty on Chinese-formulated glyphosate exported to Australia will effectively increase the cost of glyphosate to Australian farmers and will jeopardize the exports of Australian grains and food.
