Bowen offers a great location for travellers, backpackers and other visitors to work and play. This map shows farms and farm stalls located in the Bowen farming region. Please respect our biosecurity and sustainability by reading signage at the farm’s entrance and following the instructions on the sign.
“Biosecurity is everyone’s responsibility”
Visitors and seasonal workers pose a real risk to on farm biosecurity. Transfer of
disease, pest and weeds are all transferred unintentionally when visitors and workers
enter the property. This includes suppliers, vets, transporters, stock agents,
consultants, researchers, and contractors.

Guava root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne enterolobii) is a highly pathogenic and invasive nematode species. Despite its common name, it has a broad host range including many vegetable crops, ornamental plants and weeds. It has been identified as a high priority pest in the biosecurity plans for the ginger, papaya, potato, sweetpotato and vegetable industries.
Keeping records is critical to any business and in agricultural farming it can provide a range of information in relation to productivity, economics, farm operations, marketing opportunities and environmental responsibilities.
Below is a checklist that highlights all the legislative requirements for recordkeeping for chemicals based on the products that you are using. There are a number of different areas that require you to keep records including each product label, the Agricultural ERA standard as referred to in the Chemical Usage (Agricultural and Veterinary) Control Act 1988 and the Chemical Usage (Agricultural and Veterinary) Control Regulation 2017.
Legislation is not descriptive as to how to keep records only what records to keep. It is up to you as an individual entity to choose the most suitable methods of keeping records for your business.
