A farm biosecurity plan is an effective way to make sure a farm stays safe from pests and diseases.
A research project that used CRISPR to make cassava resistant to mosaic virus instead allowed the virus to mutate and be passed down to the next generation.
If biosecurity protocols are not followed consistently by all farm personnel and visitors, the biosecurity program will be ineffective.
Mechanically harvested agricultural products can be a source of tularemia infection, most likely due to contamination with animal carcasses.
