A Brave New Plant Biosecurity System

Technology and innovation are revolutionizing how we manage the rapidly increasing threats from exotic pests and diseases to our agriculture, environment, and amenity. From powerful data gathering and big data analysis that generates advance warnings of impending threats, through to molecular and GPS based tracking systems and electronically connected smart surveillance systems.
