Biosecurity

Success! Your request has been sent and a SRA representative will be in contact soon.

Exotic diseases and pests represent a significant threat to the continued security of cane supply for the Australian sugarcane industry.

In collaboration with the Variety Improvement Program our biosecurity program aims to breed disease- and pest-resistant varieties and support quarantine and disease-free seed cane programs.

Cooperating with federal and state government departments to prevent entry of these pests and to prepare for possible incursions is a high priority for the SRA Biosecurity program.
