Cucumber Green Mottle Mosaic Virus (CGMMV) was detected in Australia in 2014 and it has been nationally agreed that it is not technically feasible to eradicate the virus under the Emergency Plant Pest Response Deed (EPPRD).
As a trade sensitive pest there is a need for co-ordination of CGMMV management at the national level to contain CGMMV to known areas of infestation, prevent its spread to other growing regions and eventually eradicate the virus from Australian growing regions through medium to long term management.
This CGMMV National Management Plan (Management Plan) provides an overarching framework upon which jurisdictional operational plans should be developed to manage CGMMV. The Management Plan is underpinned by sound scientific risk assessment developed by an expert working group on CGMMV.
