DPRID continues to lead Western Australia’s defense against pests, diseases and weeds

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development is continuing to lead Western Australia’s defense against unwanted pests, diseases and weeds, intercepting more than 24,000 kilograms of risk material in the past twelve months.

Western Australia is free from many pests and diseases found elsewhere in the world and in other parts of Australia, which helps protect our agricultural industries and provides access to high value export markets.

In the 2020-21 financial year, DPIRD's quarantine WA officers inspected more than 84,000 vehicles travelling through the road checkpoints at Kununurra and Eucla and met nearly 600,000 airline passengers arriving into WA.

Some of the more interesting intercepts include a large fruit and vegetable assortment of eggplants, garlic, apples, avocados, bananas and green beans from one passenger arriving at the Perth domestic airport.
