Biosecurity plan for the lychee, papaya and passionfruit industries (MT18006)

Key research provider: Plant Health Australia

What’s it all about?

Beginning in 2020, this investment is reviewing and combining biosecurity plans for the lychee, papaya and passionfruit industries. This 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, and 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.

The industries’ current biosecurity plans are available from Plant Health Australia here:
