The following documents relate to the draft pest risk analysis report for Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae associated with Actinidia propagative material
Biosecurity Australia initiated this pest risk analysis (PRA) after the detection of Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae (Psa) in New Zealand. Following the detection in New Zealand, Australia suspended the importation of kiwifruit propagative material from all sources, pending the outcome of the PRA.
Subsequently, a less aggressive strain of this bacterium was detected in Australia. This PRA focuses on all Psa strains not present in Australia.
