Review of the biosecurity plan for the sweetpotato industry (PW17000)

Key research provider: Plant Health Australia

What’s it all about?

Beginning in early 2018, this five-year investment is tasked with reviewing and updating the industry’s biosecurity plan. The plan is 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, plus 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.

To enhance the approach to implementing biosecurity, the project also establishes a Biosecurity Implementation Group.

The current sweetpotato biosecurity plan is available from the Plant Health Australia website.
