Citrus, stone fruit and table grape growers across Sunraysia have until tomorrow to register details to take part in an upcoming poll.

Growers who register will have the chance to have their on whether to create the proposed Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area Industry Development Order 2018.

If supported, the order would establish a committee for the next four years; collecting payments from local farmers.



The funds collected by the Order would be used to coordinate the management and control of the Queensland Fruit Fly across North West Victoria and South West NSW.

Growers are now being urged to register and confirm their details at one of 12 locations, including in Mildura, Dareton, Mildura Rural City Council, or Wentworth Shire Council.

A voting poll will give growers the chance to decide whether the order is the right approach for the region.

The vote itself will take place between the 13th of April to the 1st of May.
