Australian Vignerons has recently completed work on forming the framework for a national phylloxera management plan, carried out by Retallack Viticulture, and with the assistance of Vinehealth Australia. This work was made possible with a federal government grant from the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR).
At the time of this update, this project has reached the stage of completing the initial written work, and the next stage of regional consultation is set to begin. The final result will be a 'living document' located on the Australian Vignerons website, and will be accessible to all, and will be updated as required. This will ensure that the latest, most relevant information is available to all grape growers.
