Have you just come back from overseas? Did you walk down vine rows or adjacent to vines while away? If so, did you feel uneasy about your biosecurity obligations upon returning to Australia and wished you were better prepared?
In the last couple of months, Vinehealth Australia has received a few phone calls from vineyard owners in this situation and in response we’ve produced a handy new fact sheet. It details best practice and alternative steps you can take in relation to footwear and clothing before, during and after you travel to minimise your chances of bringing grape phylloxera or exotic plant pests into Australia.
