We have finalised the pest risk analysis for Pepino mosaic virus and pospiviroids associated with tomato seed.

It is recommended that the import of tomato seed for sowing be permitted provided it meets our biosecurity import conditions.

Five quarantine pests associated with tomato seed need risk management measures to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. A range of measures are recommended to reduce the risk of these pests arriving in Australia via the tomato seed for sowing pathway.

We released the Draft pest risk analysis for Pepino mosaic virus and pospiviroids associated with tomato seed on 8 August 2018, for public consultation. The consultation period closed on 8 October 2018.

All submissions were considered in finalising the risk analysis.

You can read the final risk analysis report as well as our response to stakeholders on the draft report.
