The National Centre for Farmer Health and Deakin University are mapping the use of agrichemicals across Victoria in their Agricultural Chemical Use Mapping project.
Understanding which chemicals are more commonly used, and where they are used, allows us to provide you with more accurate and relevant information about how to keep yourself, and your family, safe on the farm.
This research will help to tailor education and initiatives that support farmers to continue to use agrichemicals on-farm safely.
Farmers and farm-workers are invited to participate in this project via an anonymous 10-15 min online survey. Participation in this research project is voluntary and it will cover general agrichemical use and hygiene, PPE (personal protection equipment) practices and descriptions of any illness experienced during the use of agrichemicals.
