Smart biosecurity science: Australian agriculture’s access to world markets
Successful research, development and extension (RD&E) that supports Australia’s enviable biosecurity reputation must be prioritised and is best served by the establishment of a new research corporation, according to a landmark discussion paper authored by the Australian Farm Institute. The discussion paper has been prepared to spark conversation about a sustainable model for plant biosecurity RD&E in Australia. Stakeholder input on the paper is being canvassed, with submissions invited between 11 April and 9 May.
