Review of the national biosecurity plan for the potato industry and development of a biosecurity manual for potato producers (PT16004)

Key research provider: Plant Health Australia

What’s it all about?

This ongoing investment is responsible for updating the industry’s biosecurity plan – identifying high-priority endemic and exotic pests and diseases along with the risk mitigation activities required to reduce their biosecurity threat.

It has also developed a manual for growers to help grow awareness of key pests and diseases, and the steps that can be taken to minimise their risk. The Potato Growers’ Biosecurity Manual can be accessed here and also highlights legislative changes to ensure growers are up to date regarding their official biosecurity obligations. Hard copies can be ordered through AUSVEG while they last, by emailing madeleine.quirk@ausveg.com.au.
