New Signs Protect NSW Wine Supply

The NSW Government will install 65 new biosecurity signs across the state’s wine regions to keep vineyards phylloxera free.

Phylloxera are very small aphid-like insects that are regarded as the world’s worst grapevine pest. 

Minister for Agriculture and Western NSW Dugald Saunders said an incursion of phylloxera in the state’s prime wine-growing regions would be devastating, not only for wine production but also for the 53,000 people the industry employs, with the grape sector contributing $14 billion to the NSW economy annually.
