Greenhouse Vegetable Sector Biosecurity Guide

This Greenhouse Vegetable Sector Biosecurity Guide (the Guide) has been developed as a supporting document to the National Voluntary Farm-Level Biosecurity Standard for the Greenhouse, Nursery and Floriculture Sectors (the Standard) to assist producers with the development of a biosecurity plan. The Standard contains biosecurity measures of relevance to all three sectors. This Guide is voluntary and provides sector-specific biosecurity measures for consideration to help greenhouse vegetable producers achieve the pest risk mitigation goals identified in the target outcomes previously set within the Standard.

It is recognized that each biosecurity plan will be specific to each place of production, and not all the recommendations in this Guide will be universally applicable. The information and guidance that is provided is applicable to both established and new places of production. The considerations outlined in this Guide are based on scientifically sound principles that may reduce the risk of pest introduction, help to enhance pest management within a place of production and mitigate the spread to additional places of production.
