Project description

Vineyard contractors are a key service provider to the wine industry, but by nature, their movement between vineyard properties creates biosecurity risk.

Vinehealth Australia has contracted Viticultural Consultant Liz Riley from Vitibit to assist in the development and delivery of a contractor biosecurity education program.

The program aims to raise general biosecurity awareness and arm contractors with knowledge to have important conversations with vineyard owners about how they can jointly reduce biosecurity risks.
