PostSubject: Whatever the government touches, turns to shit: OZschwitz govt botches potato, tomato pest crisis   Sun Jul 23, 2017 3:13 am

The WA government cost local food producers access to interstate markets with its 'haphazard' handling of an exotic pest outbreak earlier this year, an investigation has found.

Exports of WA potatoes to east-coast states were halted as Australia's first case of the destructive tomato-potato psyllid was discovered in Perth backyards in February.

A Biosecurity Council report said staff inexperience, a failure to collaborate with industry experts and a lack of data contributed to the Department of Agriculture and Food's failure to secure market access during the crisis.

"[The Department] did not take leadership, made an inconsistent effort and had an inadequate understanding of the roles and responsibilities in coordinating the documentation and supporting information needed for market access," the report said.

But it acknowledged WA's reputation for over-vigilance in border protection has "hardened attitudes" of other states when it came to negotiating access to food markets.
