Fruit fly research gets national focus
Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce has launched Australia’s National Fruit Fly Research, Development and Extension Plan, developed by the Plant Biosecurity CRC.
The launch of the Plan follows consultation with a wide range of stakeholders including individual growers, specialist RD&E funders and providers, and State and Federal Government agencies.
“The National Fruit Fly Research, Development and Extension Plan builds on the significant investment by industry and governments on operational, regulatory, research and development and market access programs to manage fruit fly,” Minister Joyce said.
“A national strategy will focus research where it’s needed most, giving growers, regulators and governments new tools to improve farm productivity and secure market access."
