New ‘Pest Reporting and Responses’ course now live


PHA’s Biosecurity Online Training (BOLT) system provides free access to e-learning courses related to plant biosecurity. In response to demand for more training options, a new course called Pest Reporting and Responses has been developed.

The course is for growers, farm workers and agronomists and aims to provide them with a better understanding of reporting and responding to plant pests in Australia.

It includes information on the:

  • benefits of biosecurity
  • possible impacts of pests
  • biosecurity practices which can protect crops
  • steps to take if you find an unusual pest or symptom
  • joint response from government and industry to a pest.

You can find the course on the BOLT website.

A fact sheet was also developed and is available to download here.

If you are an industry member of PHA and feel that your members would benefit from doing the course we encourage you to link to it from your website.
