Thir project was designed to target the critical need to develop and adopt strategies to meet consumer, worker and environmental safeguards for the 1600 growers of Asian vegetables in Australia, many of whom have poor english. Surveillance of crops and laboratory tests were utilised to identify, validate and update records of the key diseases and pests in Asian vegetables in major production areas in Australia. Field trials were used to identify best management practices with the project developing fact sheets and posters identifying, in a number of translations, the pests and diseases affecting asian vegetable crops.
