Key research provider: Plant Health Australia
Publication date: Tuesday, December 13, 2022

What was it all about?

From 2017 to 2022, this investment reviewed and updated the avocado and mango industries’ biosecurity plans. These plans are top-level documents that identify high-priority endemic and exotic pests, diseases, and weeds, along with the risk mitigation activities required to reduce their biosecurity threat, and surveillance and diagnostic activities. They provide a strategic framework for industry and government to work together to improve preparedness for and response to these potential threats.

Current biosecurity plans for the industries are available from Plant Health Australia – avocado here and mango here.
