Plant Biosecurity Guidance documents
Plant Biosecurity Guidance documents topics related to Plant Healthy.
Research has shown that plant waste and spent growing media can harbour pests and pathogens, including quarantine-regulated species such as Phytophthora ramorum. These organisms have the potential to spread from untreated waste piles to cultivated plants and the wider environment. This guidance aims to help the horticultural sector understand and mitigate these risks by providing some practical advice on waste management.
This guidance aims to help those responsible for growing or handling live plants to follow good biosecurity practice and reduce pest risks from trade pathways.
