This week, Biosecurity Solutions Australia commenced a second on-farm biosecurity system trial in New South Wales.
What is most pleasing about these trials is the level of commitment and understanding demonstrated by our growers and supporting industry organisations.
A system approach to addressing risk is not unfamiliar to Australian agriculture - many producers already employ modern food quality, food safety and environmental stewardship systems.
Our job is to deliver a reasonable, practical and value adding on-farm biosecurity system that complements existing systems and provides effective control of biosecurity risks.
Biosecurity is an extremely complex area - it has taken over 50 years of on-ground biosecurity experience and two years of development to get to this point. We believe our approach is a world first - and long overdue.
