Movement and quarantine controls

The best way to stop the spread of banana freckle is by observing the movement and quarantine controls. 

If you buy banana plants, or are part of the sentinel program, your plants must stay at the address listed on your permit.

You must not move banana plants and other banana plant-related material such as suckers, fruit and leaves into, within or out of red zones without a permit. You may be fined and your plants will be destroyed.

Following these controls is the best way to stop the spread of banana freckle.
