Methyl bromide disinfestation of cherries for Queensland fruit fly (Qfly) (CY16009)
What’s it all about?
This project is tasked with providing a data package on the use of methyl bromide as a post-harvest disinfestation fumigant for Queensland fruit fly on cherries. This information will be used to help develop improved market access with commercially viable protocols.
Its work is part of the Cherry Industry Market Access Program – a high-priority, combined initiative to increase market access for cherries that is providing management practices and evidential support for market-access negotiations.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Cherry Fund
