Phylloxera Management Zones in Australia

Phylloxera Management Zones in Australia

In February 2020, Agriculture Victoria confirmed new phylloxera detections in the Yarra Valley – both inside the current Maroondah Phylloxera Infested Zone (PIZ) and outside the PIZ in the Phylloxera Risk Zone (PRZ) to the south-east of the Maroondah PIZ, near Yarra Junction. Since February, Agriculture Victoria has been working with industry to determine the new boundary for the Maroondah PIZ to encompass the previously identified extension areas.

Refer to the Agriculture Victoria Industry Notice and MAP dated 30 March 2020 for the updated single extension boundary (shown as the opaque purple crosshatch on the Agriculture Victoria map).

NOTE: This extension is still pending gazettal as a PIZ by Victoria, but is considered a Phylloxera Interim Buffer zone (PIBZ) under South Australia’s Plant Quarantine Standard while gazettal is pending. In practice, this means that importation requirements from a PIZ into SA also apply to importations from this extension area.

  1. Phylloxera Infested Zone (PIZ) is known to have phylloxera
  2. Phylloxera Interim Buffer Zone (PIBZ) means a zone of 5 km radius around a new detection of phylloxera in Australia, as officially notified by the Chief Plant Health Manager of the jurisdiction in which the detection has been made, as an interim measure pending declaration of a new or amended PIZ in that jurisdiction. At present this is a South Australian management zone only.
  3. Phylloxera Risk Zone (PRZ) phylloxera status unknown (but never detected)
  4. Phylloxera Exclusion Zone (PEZ) known to be free from phylloxera
