Incursion UPDATESThe WA citrus industry receives insider information on current responses at the latest WA Horticulture Biosecurity Advisory Council meeting. IN mid-August, biosecurity officer Helen Newman and industry manager Bronwyn Walsh joined other horticultural and bee industries at a WA Horticultural Biosecurity Advisory Council meeting. The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) gave updates on at least six responses that are currently occurring in Western Australia. Four of these are related to exotics to WA and the remainder are exotic to Australia. The group meetings are a good opportunity to build relationships with DPIRD plant health staff, understand the emergency responses and gain learnings from other responses and at-risk industries.
