Abstract'Reducing the risk of Exotic Pests and Diseases in Cane' was a project aimed at maximising the effectiveness of the Australian sugarcane industry's quarantine system. The main objective of the project was to complete an educational CD-ROM package and to determine if the technology offered an additional opportunity for training and information transfer. The Cane Guard package was produced to provide the user with the flexibility to learn at their leisure and the ability to revise a topic as many times as necessary. Users can also review what they have learnt by doing a quiz. It is envisaged that the technology used for Cane Guard will eventually replace the traditional lecture-style or printed formats currently being used throughout the Australian sugarcane industry.
