FARMING AHEAD | Peak body pushing for mouse bait permit extension

GRAIN Producers Australia (GPA) has applied for an extension of the permit (PER90799) to produce ZP50, or double strength, mouse bait.

GPA says it is continuing to work through the correct processes with the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) and mouse bait manufacturers listed on the permit, to support this application and respond to various requests.

The GPA application for extension follows a previous successful application and GPA says the aim is to have the permit extended again to meet current demand to help control mice on farms.

The previous permit to use ZP50 (50g/kg Zinc Phosphate) expired on 31 December 2023.

"Growers have indicated to GPA they're continuing to experience mouse activity on-farm and support the continued use of ZP50 through this permit to provide another, more effective option to help protect their crops from mouse damage," GPA said in a statement released today.
