Exotic Plant Pest: Tomato Potato Psyllid and Zebra Chip

Wednesday 15 February 2017

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.

See Condition 17 in the Plant Quarantine Standard for South Australia - version 13

If you have any questions on the entry conditions or arrangements to import fruit, vegetables and plants in the solanaceae and convolvulaceae families, please contact:

  • Biosecurity SA's Market Access team on (08) 82077814.

If you suspect any arriving produce is affected by Tomato Potato Psyllid, call the Exotic Plant Pest Hotline on 1800 084 881.
