Jacqueline Rowarth - Chemical Controversy

From Sunday Morning, 9:40 am on 10 February 2013

Jacqueline Rowarth is Professor of Agribusiness at the University of Waikato. She says the controversy over the use of the chemical DCD in the dairy industry has been overblown and could have been better handled. Professor Rowarth says other projects are underway to do similar tasks as DCD to mitigate environmental damage; but one of the biggest problems in New Zealand is that new technology is developed which farmers are not allowed to use because of concerns about chemicals.
