The preparedness activity—Exercise Yellow Dragon, named after the literal translation of plant disease Huanlongbing (HLB)—will test Australia’s preparedness against HLB and plant pest Asian Citrus psyllid (ACP).  Australia’s Chief Plant Protection Officer, Dr Kim Ritman, said ACP and HLB were serious agricultural threats. “Asian citrus psyllid is a small, sap‐sucking insect. The psyllid is a serious pest of young citrus trees and can also transmit the citrus disease Huanglongbing that makes fruit taste bitter and will eventually kill the affected tree,” Dr Ritman said. “Major pest and disease outbreaks could devastate the health of people, animals and our environment, impacting the economy and preventing domestic and international trade. “Australia is currently free of ACP and HLB and we want to keep it that way.” Dr Ritman said simulation exercises helped ensure appropriate measures were in place to manage biosecurity risks and to reduce the likelihood that they could establishment in Australia. “The exercise will test elements of Australia’s existing emergency response plans including evaluation of suitable eradication strategies for ACP and HLB,” Dr Ritman said. Exercise activities will also focus on tracing host material to and from infected premises, property quarantine arrangements, surveillance, and community engagement and the development of a public information strategy. “Biosecurity management is a big job and everyone can help safeguard Australia against pest and disease threats,” Dr Ritman said. “Some simple things you can do if you spot plant pests or signs of plant disease include not moving plants, plant material or fruit. “You can report any unusual plant pests or symptoms of citrus plants to the Exotic Plant Pest Hotline 1800 084 881.” Exercise Yellow Dragon is being hosted in Sydney March 11 and 12, 2015.
