Disease outbreaks or new pests and weeds can have a serious and long-term financial impact on your farm. As a grower you can’t control what happens at our national border, but you can control what happens at your farm border.
A risk register is similar to a H&S register, except it identifies the biosecurity risks that apply to your farm. Developing a risk register can help with the implementation of on farm good management biosecurity practices.
The Arable Biosecurity Risk Register is an interactive PDF which can be printed off. It has 6 risk sections.
- In each section tick all the recommended practices that apply to you and that you are either already implementing or are planning to implement.
- If it is not a current activity then add in the actions required to implement the recommended practice.
- Put in an intended completion date.
- If there are any biosecurity practices that are relevant to your farm that are not covered, these can be captured in the empty rows at the end of the register.
It is an interactive PDF which means it can be filled in on-line, then printed off for your records. Alternatively it can be downloaded from the website then filled in and saved electronically. NB. If you wish to save the form electronically, you must download it BEFORE you fill it out. If you download it afterwards, you will lose all your data.
