Voting on new IDO 2018
All citrus, stone fruit and table grape growers in the Greater Sunraysia region will be required to participate in a vote on whether to create the proposed Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area Industry Development Order 2018.
The vote will be held via postal ballot between 13 April and 1 May. Voting is compulsory.
If supported, the order would establish the Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area Industry Development Committee for a further four years. The committee would collect payments from citrus, stone fruit and table grape growers in the Greater Sunraysia Production Area.
These funds would be used to coordinate the management and control of Queensland Fruit Fly across the production area, covering the north-west of Victoria and south-west of New South Wales.
