You may have found a pest or pathogen or have heard about the threat from one coming into your crop. So where would you go for information?
There are a range of resources available. In this guidance note we show how you can get a general background on the pest or disease, where you can find more in-depth information or how you can enquire about the legislation relating to the movement and biosecurity of plants and which pests and pathogens are notifiable.
You can also find resources to learn about how the pest or disease could be controlled. Or you may want to investigate the academic and scientific research behind the factsheets and guidance.
This guidance note signposts you to a selection of the resources that you may find useful in building your knowledge of a plant health issue. Remember that this list is not exhaustive and there are plenty of other valuable information sources available.
