What is farm-gate hygiene?

Farm-gate hygiene activities are site-specific biosecurity practices to minimise the risk of pest, disease and weed incursions on your property.

These farm-gate hygiene activities should be part of your standard operating procedures. And adherence to your farm-gate hygiene systems should be an expectation for your staff, contractors and visitors.

Your commitment to biosecurity at the farm-gate is a vital part of Australia’s biosecurity system. Biosecurity is a shared responsibility – we all need to do our bit.

Vinehealth Australia has created farm-gate hygiene tools and resources to assist you.
