Victoria's biosecurity update - removal of fumigation treatment for Plums & mangoes

Ag vic logo

South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia are updating their import conditions to no longer accept methyl bromide fumigation as an end-point treatment for mangoes and plums for produce originating in Queensland fruit fly (QFF) established areas (NSW, NT, QLD, VIC). As a result, domestic trade of these commodities from Victoria will no longer be certified under ICA-04. The changes to the import conditions does not impact other commodities.
The changes to the import conditions are driven by recent interceptions of QFF in mangoes. Research has determined that there is no suitable methyl bromide disinfestation schedule for adequate control of QFF in plums and mangoes.
