‘I am going to die’ after pesticide spraying of residents in Queensland

By Emily Jones, Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data and graphics editorThe Australian Bureau has published a new interactive map that lets you compare the number of pesticides sprayed by the state’s major pesticide companies in Queensland during a 12-month period, using a variety of data sources, including local government, farmers and pest control services.

The data comes from a detailed analysis of the chemicals used in the Queensland pesticide industry by the Australian Institute of Agricultural and Resource Economics (AIPRA) and the Australian Centre for Integrated Agricultural Research.

The map was based on the AIPRA analysis of six months of pesticide data from Queensland’s five major pesticide manufacturers, and included the use of the active ingredient in most of the pesticides used by the industry, and a summary of the pesticide’s regulatory approval and use by the Queensland government.

The map shows the number and type of pesticides the major pesticide suppliers use, along with the numbers of farmers using them and the types of pesticides they use in the community.

The maps shows that, over the 12-months, the industry was responsible for spraying between 1,300 and 1,600 tonnes of pesticides.

That’s around 5,000 to 10,000 times more than what the state had to use to cover the same area.

It is the biggest number of agricultural pesticides applied in a single 12-hour period in Queensland history, with more than 300 times more pesticides than it had to spray.

The data shows that more than 80% of the total amount of pesticides applied were for use on a single crop.

The industry was also responsible for a number of serious incidents that had serious health impacts, including:A high rate of adverse events, including a spike in coronavirus casesThe death of two people from H1N1 coronaviruses.

An outbreak of the virus in the city of Lismore in May.

The coronaviral coronavillosis pandemic that began in October last year, which has claimed more than 8,600 lives.

The deaths of at least 13 Queenslanders, including five children, from the coronavirochymosis virus in January.

A coronavid outbreak in the Melbourne suburb of Caulfield that had the potential to affect more than 1,100 people.

The most severe of the outbreaks, which began in July.

More than a third of Queensland’s farms were sprayed with more pesticides in the 12 months than the total area sprayed during the same period last year.

The number of farmers who had to be removed from the state to spray their crops was also up significantly, with at least 4,200 farmers removed from Queensland during the period, with the average removal time being about one day.

A similar map of the industry in Queensland’s South East was also published earlier this year by the ABS, showing the total number of pesticide companies applied for approval to spray the state, along and across the state.

The company that uses the most pesticides in Queensland is Cephalon.

It has been a leading pest control company for Queensland for more than a century, and is the largest commercial pest control business in the state with annual revenue of about $20 million.AAP/ABC
