Listen in – collaborating for pest detection across industries

In a unique collaboration, FWPA has joined forces with Australia’s other agriculture and horticulture industries to develop exciting new diagnostic technology.

The move has the potential to change and speed up the detection of airborne pests and diseases, ultimately boosting productivity and profitability for the forestry industry.

In the latest episode of FWPA’s WoodChat podcast series, listeners will hear about the revolutionary iMapPESTS: Sentinel Surveillance for Agriculture program. The knowledge generated will allow industry decision makers to take the necessary action to mitigate the negative impacts of these threats on forestry and other sectors.
