AUSTRALIA TAKES QUARANTINE VERY SERIOUSLY IN ORDER TO PROTECT MANGO INDUSTRY ...

Protect Queensland’s mango industry

15 Dec, 2011 09:42 AM


Mango growers need to be aware of quarantine restrictions when bringing machinery into Queensland from the Northern Territory.



Biosecurity Queensland’s Senior Inspector Andrew Ygosse said an inspector’s approval was required prior to each movement into Queensland from the Northern Territory in order to protect some of Australia’s most productive regions.



“Approvals set certain conditions to minimise the risk of diseases such as mango malformation disease, which has previously been found in both Queensland and the Northern Territory,” he said.




“The Queensland mango industry is worth over $80 million a year, which is more than half of national production.


“Having these quarantine restrictions in place ensures industries are protected from plant pests and diseases occurring in other states”



Mr Ygosse said biosecurity measures such as machinery clean down and inspections were effective ways to restrict pest movement.



“These hygiene require…

Trucking executive, advocate who called for broader transport vision dies of cancer





Patrick E. Quinn, co-founder of one of the largest trucking companies in the U.S. and an advocate not just for his own industry but for multimodal transportation and greater infrastructure investment, died Tuesday of brain cancer. He was 65.



Quinn, co-chairman of U.S. Xpress Enterprises, which he founded with Max Fuller in 1985, was a major spokesman for the trucking industry, serving as chairman of the American Trucking Associations and the Truckload Carriers Association.



In 2006, then Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., appointed Quinn to the National Surface Transportation Policy and Review Study Commission, one of two commissions chartered by Congress to address infrastructure funding issues.



Quinn, along with the majority of that committee, recommended an inc…

KING MANGO STRUT HIGHLIGHTS FROM A NEW VENUE ...

King Mango Meets Wynwood Walls


12/14/2011



Above are Glenn and Francesca Terry, flanking Bob Deresz, organizers of this year's Wynwood Strut.




Over the last couple of years, the King Mango Strut, a staple in Coconut Grove for 30 years, has split up. 

There are two Struts now! 

Glenn Terry, one of the founders of the original Strut, was "let go," and now has his own version of the King Mango Strut, which is outside Coconut Grove. 

By the way, the original Coconut Grove King Mango Strut is a big deal on the streets of Coconut Grove on December 31 this year; start time is 2 pm in Center Grove. 


The wild, parody parade did not disappoint. 

And the young, hip Wynwood art crowd was the perfect energy needed to enhance the Strut experience.





Glenn is proud to say they planned this Strut on a shoestring, avoiding those pesky Miami permit and police fees and lots of the signs used were recycled campaign posters conveniently picked up off the streets, left over from last month's elections…

Samal City gov’t confiscates mango fruits and seedlings




DAVAO CITY -- The local government of Samal City in Davao del Norte has confiscated more than 2,000 pieces of fruits and seedlings pursuant to an ordinance banning the entry of mangoes on the island.




Samal City Administrator Cleto B. Gales told BusinessWorld the enforcement of the measure started in October after the ordinance was signed to prevent the entry of pulp weevil (Sternochetus frigidus) and seed weevil (Sternochetus mangiferae) that could threaten the island-city’s mango industry.



“We have assigned people at all entry points leading to the island. The fruits will be placed in bins and the visitors have the option of coming back for them when they go home,” he said.




The Bureau of Plant and Industry (BPI) in October this year issued Special Quarantine Administrative Order 2 declaring the island free from pests. The order was co-signed by BPI Director Clarito M. Barron and Agriculture Sec…
