About the Multi-Industry Project MT10049
The biocontrol work and Anastatus case study trials were part of a Multi-Industry Project. A collaboration of industry, government and private enterprise. The project was principally funded by avocado, macadamia, papaya and lychee grower R&D levies matched by the Australian Government through Horticulture Australia. NSW Department of Primary Industries and Qld Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation are also contributing funds to the project, and NSW DPI is managing the project on behalf of all partners. Other project partners include the University of Qld and BioResources Pty Ltd.
