Plant biosecurity is a series of measures that aid in protecting production areas from harmful insects, weeds, and various plant diseases. On-farm biosecurity best practices play a pivotal role in maintaining Australia’s reputation of producing high quality products.

To help you better understand on-farm biosecurity and how to implement practices on your farms that can protect you from damaging incursions, the levy-funded VegNET program is hosting a free webinar with industry experts for vegetable growers.

Date: Thursday 22 March 2018
Time: 12:30pm-1:30pm (AEDT)

This webinar will feature Dr Jessica Lye (AUSVEG), Greg Owens (NT Farmers) and growers speaking about what you should do to protect your farm through good hygiene and biosecurity management.
