The surveillance strategy is the latest resource prepared by Plant Health Australia (PHA) to improve biosecurity surveillance in northern Australia to protect growers from the costly impacts of pests and diseases and to realise the full potential of production systems in the north.

Following a series of workshops, meetings and discussions with numerous stakeholders, the strategy was developed by industries, the Australian Government and the governments of Western Australia (WA), Northern Territory (NT) and Queensland. It paints a picture of the many industries active in the north and highlights what we risk losing, or impeding the development of, if exotic pests and diseases were to enter and become established in the growing regions of northern Australia.
