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.
