Loving the surveillance talks at #pbrisym2019, not least about monitoring in north Australia covering unregulatorable (is that a word!?) threat pathways such as cyclones and currents. That work together with iMap Pests demonstrates the bewildering array of our field tool capacity.

Lessons from TR4 and Banana freckle #biosecurity responses in the Australian banana industry at #pbrisym2019 - responses are most effective when government and industry are working together.
