We are partnering with Government and Industry to begin a new national fruit fly survelliance project. Grids of RapidAIM’s GenII Smart Traps will be installed at five national locations in Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania. Hundreds of traps will be installed nation wide and monitored for the fruit growing season of 2018-19.
The RapidAIM team will work closely with fruit growers, horticulture service providers and State Governments to install grids in orchards and residential areas across each region.
This project is being delivered by Hort Innovation, with support from the Australian Government’s investment in improving biosecurity surveillance and analysis through the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper.
