Development of a biosecurity plan for Australian mushrooms (MU18006)

Key research provider: Plant Health Australia

What’s it all about?

This five-year investment is responsible for developing the mushroom industry’s biosecurity plan. The plan is a top-level document that identifies high-priority endemic and exotic pests and diseases, along with the risk mitigation activities required to reduce their biosecurity threat. It also identifies surveillance and diagnostic activities. It provides a strategic framework for industry and government to work together to improve preparedness for and response to these potential threats.
