Review of the biosecurity plan for the berry sector (MT18004)
What’s it all about?
This five-year investment is tasked with reviewing existing biosecurity priorities, plans and needs for the rubus and strawberry industries, and will ultimately develiver a cohesive biosecurity plan for the Australian berry sector. Like the existing individual industry plans, the berry sector plan will be a top-level document that identifies high-priority endemic and exotic pests, diseases and weeds, along with the risk mitigation activities required to reduce their biosecurity threat, plus surveillance and diagnostic activities. It will provide a strategic framework for industry and government to work together to improve preparedness for and response to these potential threats.
