Citrus Australia representatives have also attended fruit fly meetings in Griffith and been nominated to the NSW Biosecurity Working Group.

In addition tio this they have opened discussion with NSW DPI and other potential service providers on the continuation of essential industry services including fruit maturity testing and crop forecasting. Also, they have started formation of the Riverina Regional Advisory Committee to advise the Citrus Australia Board on priority issues affecting the Riverina citrus industry.
Grower meetings will be held on;

• Tuesday 17 April at 2pm, Sergi Farm 1775 Slopes Rd, Tharbogang
