What's Your Role?
Biosecurity refers to a series of management practices that minimize the introduction, spread and release of plant pests. A summary is available here
Two tools have been developed to help farmers assess their biosecurity risks and build their own voluntary on-farm biosecurity management plan:
The Grains and Oilseeds Biosecurity Standard
is a set of target outcomes that assist farmers in developing a voluntary biosecurity management plan specific to their farm.
The Grains and Oilseeds Biosecurity Guidance Document
is a “how to” guide for creating a farm specific biosecurity plan.
