Pest risk analysis of sugarcane for the Northern Australia Quarantine Strategy - Quarantine insects
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this pest risk analysis (PRA) is, firstly to identify quarantine pests and pathogens which pose a threat to sugarcane, which may enter Australia through its northern borders into the area covered by AQIS Northern Australia Quarantine Strategy (NAQS), and secondly, to identify measures which could be taken by various agencies to reduce the risks of entry or to minimise the impact of such pests should they arrive. The PRA was conducted as outlined in the FAO Standard Guidelines for Pest Risk Analysis (FAO 1996) and is one of a series of PRAs commissioned by NAWS. The other host plants covered in this series are banana, citrus, mango, cotton, grape, grain, sorghum, cucurbits, maize, pasture legumes\grasslands, eucalyptus, conifers, Acacias and palms (including coconuts).
