This series of maps and enhanced functionality includes a nation wide map of the Phylloxera infestation zones for all wine regions. It has been hailed as a critical step in ensuring an increase in general awareness of and compliance with, general quarantine protocols. The end goal is the increased security of one of Australia’s most important economic crops; grapes.
