Review of national biosecurity plans (MT17003)
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.
