The business case provided relevant information and argument to support the establishment of a funding mechanism to protect the Australian melon industry from exotic pests and diseases as well as establish an equitable source of funds for future R&D. The business case was prepared by Plant Health Australia and AgEconPlus. Michael Clarke contributed economic analysis including assessment of market failure within the Australian melon industry and the impact of levies on the financial performance of individual producers.
