What was it all about?

This project, which ran from 2017 to 2018, identified smart surveillance tools for detecting endemic and exotic pests of relevance to the Australian nursery industry, in both lab and point-of-care settings. It provided recommendations for diagnostic tools for further evaluation and adoption, to bolster biosecurity and minimise the impact of pests and diseases on the nursery industry.
