In collaboration with Biosecurity Tasmania, the TFGA is working to support the Tasmanian biosecurity system through a four year On-Farm Biosecurity Project. Through the project, we are providing support and resources for Tasmanian farmers across agricultural industries to help farmers protect their properties and industries from pests, weeds, and diseases.
We are also helping to spread the message of the importance of biosecurity to the wider community and helping to ensure our agricultural industries are protected. Through continuous and effective communication, we aim to improve and encourage positive culture change towards farm biosecurity.
For further information regarding the project or on-farm biosecurity in general, please contact Mandy Bowling on 03 6332 1800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who has visited another property before yours could carry weed seeds, pests or diseases. Visitors pose a high biosecurity risk so it is really important to manage their presence on farm.
Declared weeds are a major threat to our unique natural environment, community spaces and world class agricultural industries. Property managers are required by law to control declared weeds. This booklet has been prepared as a handy reference guide to just some of the major weed species present within Tasmania which have the potential to impact greatly on agriculture and our environment.
Below are a number of useful resources to help you to protect your farm.
