Banana industry diagnostic capacity and capability building (BA21001)

Key research provider: The University of Queensland

What's it all about?

This investment is improving and maintaining the banana industry’s diagnostic capacity to accurately detect pathogens and reduce the risk of incursions from exotic banana diseases. This is essential for containing and/or eradicating emerging and endemic banana diseases.

This work will provide detailed insight into exotic disease threats to the Australian banana industry and will contribute to increasing the awareness of the importance of exotic diseases to a wider range of stakeholders by working closely with the industry’s communication and extension programs.
