Andrew Green says the Victorian Government has recognised the fruitfly problem, spending
$9 million this year on eradication efforts. In contrast, NSW has spent just $1.7 million.
NSW risks fruitfly
QUEENSLAND fruitfly will become
endemic in southern New South Wales if
its state government does not ramp up
efforts to eradicate the pest when warmer
weather returns, according to the Tri State
Fruit Fly Committee.
Chairman Andrew Green says the existence
of the Fr uit Fly Exclusion Zone is at risk with
the NSW government ending its eradication
program in Griffith earlier this year, and no
guarantee it would start again.
"This is obviously of great concern to fr uit
growers and their communities in the region,
who face substantial treatment costs and the
loss of crucial export markets," he said.
"While colder weather will reduce fruitfly
activity, now is not the time to let down our
"The Victorian government has recognised
this, spending $9 million on eradication
efforts. In contrast, NSW has spent just $1.7
"What's the point of having an exclusion
zone if it's not being protected?"
Mr Green said the collapse of Riverina Citr us
was a further blow to NSW efforts against
"Riverina Citrus was a partner in the com-
mittee's efforts to raise awareness about fruit-
fly and now that contribution to this important
program is gone," he said.
"It's critical that this hole in the program is
filled as soon as possible. Every available
resource must be brought to bear in this fight
if Queensland fruitfly is not to become endem-
ic in southern NSW.
"This will not only devastate fruit industries
in the state but substantially increase the risk to
quarantine areas in northern Victoria and
South Australia's Riverland region.
"Fruit industries contribute hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars to local, state and national
economies and constitute the livelihoods of
thousands of Australian families. They must
not be risked by government cost-cutting."
