Biosecurity Framework for the Australian Banana Industry
The Banana Industry Biosecurity Framework identifies gaps in knowledge, scientific protocols and on-farm practice for the high priority pests and diseases of the Australian banana industry. It has been developed as part of the Banana Strategic Industry Development project that was funded by Hort Innovation.
For specific information about various pests and diseases, please visit the dedicated Panama TR4 page or the Pests and Diseases page.
