Tas vegetable growers face fruit fly market concernsAs efforts continue to eradicate Queensland fruit fly from Flinders Island and the Tasmanian mainland, vegetable exporters are receiving concerned calls from Asian markets.
Ian Locke from the Tasmanian Fruit and Vegetable Export Facilitation Group said the industry had fielded a number of calls seeking further information on the fruit fly outbreaks.
"Sales of Tasmanian vegetable exports remain unaffected by the restrictions imposed for fruit through the control zone around the Spreyton region in North-West Tasmania," Ian Locke said.

"Vegetable exports such as potatoes, carrots and onions remain free to enter all markets."
Ian said Tasmanian vegetables continue to maintain their high-level status in regards to pest and disease due to not being fruit fly hosts.
"Chilled onions and carrots have been exported to many Asian markets for up to three decades and this will continue throughout the season."
