The Ginger Industry Biosecurity Plan (IBP) is a framework to coordinate biosecurity activities and investment for Australia’s ginger industry. It provides a mechanism for industry, governments, and stakeholders to better prepare for, and respond to, incursions of Emergency Plant Pests that could have significant impacts on the ginger industry.
With the help of the industry’s biosecurity plan AGIA helps it’s members to:
evaluate the biosecurity risks within their farming and business activities,
to formally identify and prioritise exotic plant pests, and
focus on future biosecurity challenges.
The ginger IBP was developed in consultation with an Industry Biosecurity Group (IBG), a select group of plant health and biosecurity experts. The IBG was coordinated by Plant Health Australia (PHA) and included representatives from the Australian Ginger Industry Association (AGIA), relevant state and territory agriculture agencies and research organisations.
