NZ: Government easing constraints to agricultural innovations
Scoop.co.nz: Agcarm commends the government for tabling a Bill to improve access to the latest innovations in veterinary medicines and agrichemicals, helping New Zealand agriculture to remain competitive.
Agcarm chief executive, Mark Ross says “We applaud the government for supporting primary production, by encouraging the registration of new products from overseas and new uses for existing products.
“This means New Zealand can remain competitive in a global market,” he added.
Improved data protection will allow farmers and growers to have access to more products, because there will be an incentive for suppliers and manufacturers to invest in them.
