Plant Health Australia Ltd

Plant industries and governments are in the process of establishing Plant Health Australia Limited. PHA will form the cornerstone of a new national approach to plant health in which industries and governments will work closely together to enhance Australia's plant health. The grains industry has decided that it should join PHA and has decided that the Grains Council of Australia (GCA) would be the most appropriate organisation to represent the grains industry.

The GCA has approached the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) seeking funds from the GRDC existing funding base to make the initial grains industry contribution to Plant Health Australia.

Growers can make comments on the proposal to, or seek further information from, the contacts below.
