This project aims to develop a contigency plan for the Leafminer that can be appended to PLANTPLAN, Australia’s generic emergency response plan for plant pest incursions. This project used desktop research to estimate potential geographic distribution of key exotic leafminers in Australia in relation to climate, assess the potential damage to the vegetable industry and review and identify pest management strategies, diagnostic tools and pest incursions. Along with this a communication plan and structure is being developed that identifies steps necessary to quickly respond to a leafminer incursion.
