MetadataShow full item record
The review of the Biosecurity Plan for the sugarcane industry will comprehensively investigate new and emerging sugarcane pests and diseases, identify biosecurity capacity and guide the implementation of projects that effectively prepare industry to avoid, or deal with, biosecurity threats and meet biosecurity obligations. The development of a grower-targeted farm biosecurity information in the form of a Biosecurity Manual for sugarcane producers (GBM) will assist producers and contractors to access the knowledge required to identify endemic threats, implement farm biosecurity measures and meet regional quarantine obligations. Information from a Biosecurity Manual will provide clear direction to those managing regional biosecurity and provide a basis of information for a future Code of Practice that sets out mandatory stakeholder responsibilities supported by legislation.
