Draft group pest risk analysis for thrips and tospoviruses on fresh fruit, vegetable, cut-flower and foliage imports

The draft group pest risk analysis considers the biosecurity risk posed by all members of the insect order Thysanoptera (commonly referred to as thrips) and all members of the virus genus Tospovirus that are (or are likely) to be associated with fresh fruit, vegetables, cut flowers or foliage imported into Australia as commercial consignments from any country. Phytosanitary measures are identified in the draft report for use in specific cases where measures are required. The draft report includes eight chapters and seven appendixes as follows:


1.  Introduction

2.  Pest categorisation of thrips (part A)

3.  Pest categorisation of thrips (part B)

4.  Pest categorisation of tospoviruses

5.  Pest risk assessment of thrips

6.  Pest risk assessment of tospoviruses

7.  Key findings

8.  Pest risk management measures
