Tomato Potato psyllid (TPP) Surveillance Programme

Extended surveillance for incursions of the Tomato Potato psyllid in eastern Australia by the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture

The Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA), funded by Horticulture Innovation Australia, is coordinating a national surveillance program for the Tomato Potato psyllid (TPP) which was discovered in Western Australia in February 2017.

Industry stakeholders are invited to participate in the surveillance program by placing sticky traps in TPP susceptible crops and returning them to TIA for checking the presence of the pest. TIA will provide this service free of charge and supply reply-paid envelopes for returning traps.
