Episode 18: Improving surveillance with emerging technologies with Tim Hurst

We are used to advancements in technology changing the way we live, but did you know it can also assist with protecting our plant industries from exotic pests? Early detection of an exotic pest could become more efficient as we take a look at some of the emerging technologies and science being developed and deployed to help keep Australia free of a range of exotic pests.

Tim Hurst, Surveillance Design and Analysis Officer with Agriculture Victoria explains to us how some of these technologies work in the latest ‘The Good, The Bad, and the Bug-ly’ episode.
