National Fruit Fly Council Phase 4

This project continues funding for the National Fruit Fly Council (NFFC), which consists of federal and state governments, industry representatives and research funders who strategically coordinate fruit fly management in Australia. Fruit fly is one of the biggest trade barriers for horticulture products. In 2016 the cost to Australia was estimated to be $300 million due to control measures and international trade restrictions.

National Bee Pest Surveillance Program: Transition Program

This project will continue the delivery of a national surveillance program for 13 pests (mites and beetles) and pest bees that could carry parasites or cause damage to honey-bee and pollinator-dependent industries in Australia. It is designed to ensure the early detection of high-priority pest incursions, which provides the best opportunity for successful pest eradication.

Abalone Viral Ganglioneuritis (AVG) R&D Needs Workshop

Abalone Viral Ganglioneuritis (AVG) disease is caused by a herpesvirus and was first detected in Victoria in December 2005. Since May 2021, cases of AVG in Victoria have been confirmed as far east as Cape Otway and as far west as the Discovery Bay Marine Park. This review will support those involved in the outbreak and urgently seek solutions through researching current biosecurity protocols, options for surveillance and diagnostic tools to aid rapid detection, to future proof the industry.

Integrated disease management of black core rot in citrus

This project is developing tools for the effective management of citrus black core rot, which causes internal rot and bitter flavours in infected fruit that is often undetected until it reaches the juicing plant or kitchen bench. It aims to unravel the disease cycle, including sources of inoculum and timing of infection. A post graduate will be involved throughout the project to increase the future research capability of the Australian citrus industry.
