Fruit certification for TR4-infested farms in Australia

Thursday, 13 September 2018

Biosecurity Queenland announced that it has developed a system of certification for farms infested with Tropical Race 4  (TR4) that meet the requirements for interstate and intrastate quarantine purposes (Inspection of bananas for freedom of soil and plant material). The system allows accredited businesses to certify their fruit consignments without putting the wider industry at risk. Accredited farms will be visited by biosecurity officers to audit the fruit inspection process and ensure that biosecurity requirements are being met.
