Exotic diseases and pests present a significant threat to the continued security of cane supply for the Australian sugarcane industry. Cooperating with federal and state government departments to prevent entry of these pests and to prepare for possible incursions is one of our highest priorities.

Working with the Variety Improvement Program to breed disease- and pest-resistant varieties and conducting quarantine and disease-free seed cane programs to prevent the spread of pests and diseases within Australia are also high priorities.
