Ongoing project

Review of national biosecurity plans (MT17003)

Key research provider: Plant Health Australia

What’s it all about?

Beginning in late 2017, this five-year project is for and funded by both the avocado and mango industries. It is responsible for reviewing and updating the 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.
