Avocado industry biosecurity strategy 2022-2026 (AV21002)
What's it all about?
This investment delivers improved biosecurity outcomes for the Australian avocado industry through implementing a range of industry preparedness and prevention strategies.
The project will:
- Develop and deliver foundational exotic pest preparedness documents, supported by exotic pest incursion and response exercises.
- Identify current gaps in pest risk assessment, pathway analyses and diagnostic capability in order to better understand the risks posed to the avocado industry.
- Increase the uptake of appropriate on-farm biosecurity practices by identifying and addressing barriers to adoption.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Avocado Fund
