Crackdown on illegal chemicals

UrbanVirons Group are a responsible corporate citizen that is committed to a policy of minimum environmental impact in relation to all its activities.

Our weed management division that works in the containment and control of both invasive environmental and urbanweeds that are impacting the community, do so in a variety of ways balancing effectiveness of treatment with efficiency and cost constraints.

Where we are called upon to control weeds using herbicides we only use those manufacturers that are members of Croplife Australia, and whose products are either manufactured/or tested to meet Australian standards and are approved for specified use by the Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).

The availability of illegal imports from overseas of unverified product has been an issue of concern within the industry for sometime. Here is the latest media release from Croplife Australia* in relation to this matter:
