Spotted Wing Drosophila: where will this world citizen make its next travel destination?

This is an article about spotted wing Drosophila in the soft fruit industries. The spotted wing drosophila (SWD) is a global pest of soft fruit industries and the subject of a current Hort Innovation funded biosecurity project led by Plant Health Australia, in collaboration with cesar and Plant and Food Research NZ. The SWD is not found in Australia, but recent incursions in the United States and Europe have raised concerns about the production impact if this fly were to breach Australian borders.
