Biosecurity resources for Australian potato growers and industry members

The Australian potato industry is committed to building its capacity to respond to potential biosecurity threats. In addition to dedicated farm biosecurity officers and advisers, a range of farm biosecurity planning resources are available for growers, advisers and industry members to access. These resources are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect industry needs. 

The Potato Growers’ Biosecurity Manual includes an overview of the importance of biosecurity in the industry and key farm biosecurity practices, as well as biosecurity checklist and fact sheets on pest and disease threats to the industry. 

You can also visit Plant Health Australia’s website to access individual fact sheets on a range of potato pest threats such tomato-potato psyllid, root knot nematode, Colorado potato beetle and more.
