Farm Management System
Minimise your risk with the Nursery Production Farm Management System
The Nursery Production Farm Management System (FMS) enables you to critically evaluate each component of your production nursery identifying areas of concern and manage the identified risks. It allows you to validate your business integrity within the supply chain through an independent auditing process across the disciplines of best practice, environment, and biosecurity.
In consultation with a technical officer you can tailor the FMS to address your unique business risks. By using a systematic approach you will have a pro-active plan for managing change, including technology adoption, resource efficiencies, and enhanced profitability.
The Nursery Production FMS includes 3 key programs:
NIASA- Ensures you maintain a benchmark standard and assists in continuous improvement.
EcoHort - Demonstrates you have sound environmental stewardship and natural resource management.
BioSecure HACCP - Manages your biosecurity risks for both imported and exported material.
For more information contact your State or Territory Association.
NIASA Audit Portal (NAP)
A web-based portal referred to as the NIASA Audit Portal (NAP) has been developed by NGIA to improve the efficiencies of the Nursery Production Farm Management System (FMS) audit process. Businesses engaged with the Nursery Production FMS can use the NAP to access and manage all their confidential NIASA, EcoHort and/or BioSecure HACCP checklists and action plans.
Data entered into the NAP is stored on a secure server and is password protected. Data can only be accessed by the designated Industry Development Officer (IDO) or the business in question after logging into the NAP. If your business is part of the Nursery Production FMS, please contact your State/Territory Nursery & Garden Industry Association to obtain login details.
