Text (summary): 

Western Australian apple and pear growers caught up in trade restrictions relating to the recent exotic pest Tomato Potato Psyllid (TPP) outbreak will soon be able to trade interstate again.

An in-principle agreement that apple and pear fruit do not represent a risk of carrying TPP, provided they are free of leafy material, was reached at a meeting in Adelaide earlier this month, which included representatives from the Commonwealth and jurisdictions, Plant Health Australia, AusVeg, PomeWest and representatives from other WA industries similarly affected. It is expected that SA, Victoria and NSW will amend entry conditions soon and growers are advised to check the latest interstate trade requirements on state department websites linked below.
