BIO-SIGNAGE - WA Agriculture Minister Kim Chance recently welcomed a joint 
initiative of Australian Wheat Board International and the WA Department of
Agriculture that aims to reduce the spread of pests, weeds and diseases in
WA.
The initiative will encourage growers to display biosecurity signage on farm
gates by way of a $50 subsidy towards the cost of each farm sign.
Mr Chance said good biosecurity was a key factor for WA farmers to help
protect their livelihood from pests and diseases such as fusarium head
blight, codling moth, bedstraw and khapra beetle.
In 2003/04 the GRDC invested almost $19 million in 200 projects across
Australia in its crop protection program.
