Vinehealth Australia is producing a series of eye-catching posters for growers to improve biosecurity knowledge on a range of topics as follows:
General farm-gate hygiene
Footwear and small hand tool disinfestation protocol
For further information on the published research undertaken which led to the change in the Footwear and Small Hand Tools Disinfestation Protocol reflected in the above posters, click here.
High Priority exotic/reportable endemic plant pests and diseases to Australia

- a world map showing the location of the pests in the poster;
- a descriptive table outlining characteristic symptoms, vine impact, when to monitor and what plant part is affected; and
- tips for vineyard monitoring (coming soon).
