This project aimed to:

  • Gather scientific evidence that seed and pulp weevils are not present in Sarangani and Samal Island and to conduct a low level ongoing monitoring program in Davao del Sur to supplement internal quarantine measures.
  • Use this information to support area freedom certification and expand export opportunities.
  • Increase the capacity of participating provinces to conduct ongoing surveys via the provision of trained personnel.
  • Develop better management options for mango seed weevil in north Queensland.
