Citrus Biosecurity Program

Citrus IndustryThe Citrus Biosecurity Program is an initiative to improve the management of, and preparedness for, biosecurity risks that threaten the citrus industry.

Launched in 2013, the program is managed by Plant Health Australia and funded by growers through Horticulture Australia Limited using the citrus industry R&D levy and matched funds from the Australian Government.

The Citrus Biosecurity Manager, Stuart Pettigrew, coordinates industry biosecurity activities, delivers training and develops material to raise awareness to growers, consultants and other industry stakeholders. PHA manages the national program and assists the Biosecurity Manager to deliver key messages by producing communication tools such as biosecurity signs, fact sheets and media releases.
