Import Risk Analysis: Persea americana Plants for Planting


This document provides a scientific analysis of the risks associated with the importation of Persea americana plants for planting. It assesses the introduction of pests and pathogens associated with Persea americana budwood imported from around the world, and assesses the potential impacts of those organisms should they enter and establish in New Zealand. The document has been internally and externally reviewed and is now released publicly for feedback. Any significant new science information received that may alter the level of assessed risk will be included in a review, and an updated version released.
