Large scale biosecurity scenario to Supported cotton industry preparedness

This project, Exercise Blueprint, was a cotton-industry targeted biosecurity incursion simulation exercise. It brought together key stakeholders to examine a scenario of a fictional detection of cotton blue disease in Australia.

Discussions and activities focused on three objectives:

  1. communication/engagement structure;

  2. potential strategies for responding to cotton blue disease in a production setting and understand consequent industry impacts; and

  3. exploring strategies to mitigate the impacts of an emergency response on cotton growers.
