February 17, 2020
The Area Wide Management (AWM) of fruit fly relies on a united management approach, bringing together agencies and representatives from a broad spectrum.
The Goulburn Murray Valley (GMV) Fruit Fly Governance Group recently met with Agriculture Victoria and the Manager of the National Fruit Fly Council in Cobram, Victoria to discuss opportunities to further enhance the coordinated management of the pest.
The GMV Fruit Fly Project is a recognised leader in Fruit Fly AWM, bringing together community, government and industry to reduce the effects of Queensland Fruit Fly (QFF) on the region, along with its horticultural sector and local economy.
The project received the 2019 Victorian Regional Achiever of the Year Award and the 2019 Victorian Agricultural Innovation Award in recognition of it achievements. Please click here for full media release.
