Action plan 2015-2020
Queensland fruit flies are a significant threat to Victoria's horticultural industry, affecting production and trade opportunities. To effectively manage this pest requires a collaborative approach between industry, government and community. The Victorian government supports this view and together with community and industry partners has developed a five year action plan (Managing Fruit Fly in Victoria Action Plan 2015-2020), linking statewide and regional actions.
The delivery of the Managing Fruit Fly in Victoria Action Plan 2015-2020 is underway. To complete the actions outlined in the plan, a number of organisations are required to work together. These organisations are represented by an advisory committee to oversee the delivery of the plan, and regional governance groups in three key horticulture areas: Goulburn Murray Valley, Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area and the Yarra Valley.
The full action plan is also available:
Regional action plans
Regionally specific fruit fly action plans have been developed for the Goulburn Murray Valley, Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area and the Yarra Valley by the Fruit Fly Regional Governance Groups in the respective regions.
These plans set out the priority actions for each region which align with the broader Managing fruit fly in Victoria Action Plan 2015-2020. While each plan has common themes around meeting industry and community education and management needs, each plan is also tailored to each unique region.
