Consultations submissions are now closed.

We finalised the review of import conditions for cucurbitaceous vegetable seeds for sowing.

We initiated a review of import conditions of four vegetable seed policies: Apiaceae (e.g. carrot, celery and parsnip), Brassicaceae (e.g. broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower), Cucurbitaceae (e.g. cucumber, melon, pumpkin) and Solonaceae (e.g. capsicum, eggplant and tomato).

The review of cucurbitaceous vegetable seeds is the second of the four vegetable families to be finalised.

Cucurbitaceous vegetable crops are species in the Cucurbitaceae family which includes cucumbers, gourds, melons, pumpkins, squashes and zucchinis.

We released a draft report for the review of cucurbitaceous vegetable seeds on 6 December 2017 for public consultation.

The consultation period closed on 19 February 2018.

All submissions were considered in finalising the review of cucurbitaceous vegetable seeds.

You can read the final report as well as our responses to stakeholder comments on the draft report.

This review is funded under the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper.
