The latest installement of the Biosecurity Queensland newsletter includes an item on the options for farming on TR4 affected land. If a grower has TR4 on their farm and they want to use a section of land to farm other crops or manage livestock, they need to meet certain biosecurity requirements. The TR4 programme has produced factsheets on managing the risks for mixed farming and cattle grazing.
In another news, scientists analyzing 451 samples of tissue from the upper part of the banana plant and fruit have re-confirmed that TR4 does not infect the fruit.
