Review of the biosecurity plan for the nursery industry (NY19003)

Key research provider: Plant Health Australia

What’s it all about?

Beginning in 2020, this five-year investment is reviewing and updating the Australian nursery industry’s current biosecurity plan. This revised plan will identify the current highest-risk pests to the industry, the risk mitigation activities needed to reduce the biosecurity threat, and the surveillance and diagnostic activities and capabilities available.

The industry’s current biosecurity plan is available from Greenlife Industry Australia here.

A list of high priority pests based on the completed Threat Summary Table, which lists all known exotic pests, has been completed and this list is a key component of the Biosecurity Plan which will be finalised in early 2022.
