APVMA iPhone App

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has announced the release of an iPhone application that makes information about agricultural and veterinary chemicals registered in Australia instantly accessible to people on the move.

The tool, thought to be a world first, will give a farmer in a paddock the ability to access a searchable database of the 10,500 agricultural and veterinary chemicals approved for use in Australia.

“The app also provides information on products that have been suspended, cancelled, stopped or archived”, said spokesperson Dr Simon Cubit.

Farmer can search for the registered chemical products available to treat a specific pest or disease. The search will also provide information about active constituents, withholding periods, product labels, and pack sizes at the touch of a button.

Once a search has been completed the farmer will be able to save the search for later reference or share the results with others, perhaps in the form of an email to a rural supply store.

Currently, the app is only available for iPhones and Tablets with a version for Android devices also being developed.
