The Maroondah Phylloxera Infested Zone (PIZ) proposed boundary extension: Agriculture Victoria

In response to new phylloxera detections in the Yarra Valley Geographic Indicator, the current position of the Maroondah PIZ boundary will be extended. In accordance with the National Phylloxera Management Protocols, a 5 km buffer zone has been established around the new detection, which has incorporated additional properties in the proposed extended Maroondah PIZ (additional properties shown in red in Diagram 1).

Agriculture Victoria is now working in partnership with those agriculture and horticulture businesses affected by the redrawing of the boundary position to determine any long-term market access impacts.
