Review of the biosecurity plan for the nursery industry (NY19003)
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.
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.
This project was a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Nursery Fund
