Best practice farm-gate hygiene can prevent diseases, weeds and pests from coming onto your property, via site-specific biosecurity practices which minimise the risk of incursions.

These farm-gate hygiene activities should be part of your standard operating procedures, and adherence to farm-gate hygiene systems should be an expectation for all staff, contractors and visitors. Your commitment to biosecurity at the farm-gate is a vital part of Australia’s biosecurity system.

Vinehealth Australia, a statutory authority committed to minimising the risk of pests and diseases (in particular phylloxera) in vineyards, has compiled the top 10 farm-gate hygiene activities in a handy fact sheet, to assist you in your biosecurity practices.

How many can you tick off?
