Biosecurity Plan for the sugarcane industry : a shared responsibility between government and industry
MetadataShow full item record
To ensure its future viability and sustainability, it is vital that the Australian sugarcane industry minimises the risks posed by exotic pests and responds effectively to plant pest threats. The Biosecurity Plan for the Sugarcane Industry (Version 3.0) is a framework to coordinate biosecurity activities and investment for Australia’s sugarcane industry. The Biosecurity Plan provides a mechanism for industry, governments and stakeholders to better prepare for and respond to, incursions of pests that could have significant impacts on the sugarcane industry. The Biosecurity Plan formally identifies and prioritises both exotic plant pests (not currently present in Australia) and established plant pests, with a focus on managing future biosecurity challenges. It also provides for an implementation plan and the framework for the Sugarcane biosecurity manual, which is a tool for use in the day to day operations of sugarcane farms.
