Biosecurity SA has implemented a new Condition 17 of the Plant Quarantine Standard South Australia, imposing restrictions and prohibitions on hosts in the solanaceae and convolvulaceae families. This directly effects well-known products like potatoes, tomatoes, capsicums, eggplants and sweet potato.
Condition 17 requires certification for host plant material, fruit and vegetables and associated planting-media, machinery and equipment that enters South Australia from Western Australia.
The conditions are effective from 11:59pm on 14th February 2017.
