PURPOSE OF YOUR ROLE:
Supports growers to be TR4 ready and helps them adjust to living with the disease.
HOW HAS YOUR ROLE HAD IMPACT FOR GROWERS?
- Provided intensive support to growers after the initial detection of TR4.
- Assistance meeting legislative requirements if TR4 is found on the farm.
- Through building capacity prior to a TR4 detection by implementing good biosecurity with a focus on keeping the disease out.
I have worked in the TR4 space since 2017 supporting and mentoring growers and working in all operational aspects of the TR4 Program in all its forms (DAF led and ABGC led).
