Membership on the National Fruit Fly Council has been selected to include representatives from industry, state government, research funding bodies, and the Australian Government. The combined experience of members of the Council ensures that the group understands and considers different crop types and fruit fly management systems from across Australia’s horticulture production regions, as well as research capacity, and market access issues.
Council membership has also been selected to ensure that there is direct experience with the in-field management of both Mediterranean fruit fly and Queensland fruit fly.
The National Fruit Fly Council is convened through Plant Health Australia, the national coordinator of the government-industry partnership for plant biosecurity in Australia.
