Some webinar takeaways

  • Dr Parker’s message to everyone entering Australia – don’t be afraid to declare produce. You won’t get in trouble – it will help Biosecurity Officers ascertain risk of what you might be bringing in and can stop it if need be. However if you don't declare, you can and will be prosecuted.
  • Many farmers have asked about footbaths at airports – the chemicals used in there are caustic and not suitable for an airport environment. There are a range of additional measures being utilised. Misdeclarations at the border can result in fines, jail time and revocation of visas. Declare honestly.
  • Developing and working to a biosecurity plan is something that every farmer can do, and it helps to minimise risks to them as well as their community.
