Trapping efficacy in table grape vineyards for area wide management of Queensland fruit fly

Closing date: 22 November 2019

Request for Proposal

Hort Innovation is seeking a suitably qualified, experienced and capable delivery partner for the project: Trapping efficacy in table grape vineyards for area wide management of Queensland fruit fly (TG19001).

The objectives of the services being sought are to assess the efficacy of different Qfly traps in a key table grape region (Sunraysia), with a participatory approach to research trials. Trapping and area wide management workshops should be conducted across the season. Information upon which growers could determine the optimum trapping strategies for management both 'on-farm' and regionally should be produced. The project will:

  • Ensure the table grape industry can maximise market access opportunities
  • Build integrated pest management capacity in the table grape industry
  • Support the Australian table grape industry in management of Qfly
  • Support the Australian table grape industry in producing clean berries, free from Qfly.

Hort Innovation has prepared a Request for Proposal (RFP) document that provides background information, outlines the scope of services, the procurement process and the information required from interested parties. The RFP may be downloaded from www.tenders.net (you will need to be a member of tenders.net to access this information).

The closing date for responses is 5.00pm (AEST), 22 November 2019.
