Click here to view the resource

The principles of the National Citrus Biosecurity Surveillance Strategy are to maximise efficiencies of surveillance efforts by integrating and connecting surveillance amongst stakeholders.

This integration will include development and use of diagnostic tools and triage networks, and surveillance which combines crop monitoring for established pests of production concern with surveillance for high priority exotic pests.
There are four program areas:

  • Improved partnerships through coordination and collaboration
  • Enhanced capability and capacity to undertake citrus biosecurity surveillance
  • Smart surveillance through risk assessment, tools and diagnostics to support detection of citrus pests
  • Improved capture and analysis of citrus pest surveillance data.
