In collaboration with Biosecurity Tasmania, the TFGA are working to not only educate farmers and the wider community about on-farm biosecurity risks, but to illustrate simple strategies to protect our Tasmanian farms.

A database will be developed outlining what is being produced in Tasmania to assist the government and industry if and when an outbreak occurs. 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 Jacky Sands on 03 6332 1800 or email jacky.sands@tfga.com.au

In collaboration with Biosecurity Tasmania, the TFGA are entering its third year working on their Farm Biosecurity Project. We are working to not only educate farmers and the wider community about on-farm biosecurity risks, but to illustrate simple strategies to protect our Tasmanian farms. We are really keen to gain an understanding of your views on this topic and would greatly appreciate your participation in the below survey. The survey takes around 1 minute to complete.

Many thanks and safe farming!

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.

Weeds Booklet

Weeds booklet

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.
