Are you aware that Vinehealth Australia operates a purpose-built Heat Shed in South Australia, located at the Naracoorte Saleyards, that can be used for disinfesting machinery and equipment?

Machinery and equipment are high risk vectors for spreading weeds, diseases and pests such as phylloxera, as they can carry grapevine material and soil and are especially hard to clean. The only way to ensure machinery and equipment is free of pests, diseases and weeds is to ‘bake it’ in a heat shed.
