The Wee Waa District is a major producer of a variety of agricultural commodities including cotton, wheat, beef cattle and sheep. These industries demand much support in terms of supplies, equipment, expert advice and labour provision. The interdependent relationships between farmers, graziers and business organizations provides the economic basis upon which the Wee Waa Community thrives.

Sero-X on track for September release

Sero-X on track for September release

By RUTH CASKEY The Land Newspaper

A BUTTERFLY pea biopesticide developed by Wee Waa-based business Innovate Ag will be released for commercial use in September following the recent approval of its active constituent.

Sero-X has passed the biggest hurdle in its approval stage, with the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority approving butterfly pea extract in December.

​Innovate Ag project director Nick Watts said the approval of the active constituent took time as APVMA hadn’t assessed a similar product in the past.

“An active constituent is normally a single compound chemical, so we had to create a new standard for a new active constituent, which is Clitoria ternatea (butterfly pea) extract, and develop the whole data package required to register it.”
