The Grains, Seeds and Hay Industry Funding Scheme (IFS) has been operating since 2010 to address biosecurity threats relevant to Western Australia’s (WA) grains, seeds and hay industry. The Scheme was established under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 to enable growers to identify the pest and disease priorities at a whole-of-industry level and raise funds for activities to address these priorities.

There are currently three Industry Funding Schemes in operation. In addition to the Grains, Seeds and Hay IFS, there is a Cattle IFS and a Sheep and Goat IFS. The three IFSs operate in a similar manner.

For the Grains, Seeds and Hay IFS, funds are raised through grower contributions that are collected by registered receivers. These payments are forwarded to the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD). In accordance with the IFS regulations, DPIRD maintain and administer the Grains, Seeds and Hay Industry Declared Pest Control and Compensation Account (the Account) in consultation with the industry.
