Pests, weeds & diseases
Pests, weeds and diseases pose a serious risk for primary producers as they can impact on market access and agricultural production.
To reduce the impact of pests, weeds and diseases, the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia:
- works with landholders, grower groups, community groups and biosecurity groups.
- provides diagnostic services and information on prevention, management and treatment.
- provides biosecurity and quarantine measures to prevent introduction, and to eradicate or manage current pests.
For diagnostic services, please contact our AGWEST Plant Laboratories or Animal Health Laboratories.
