There have been several reports of Fusarium wilt affecting mungbean paddocks throughout southern Queensland within the last couple of weeks. Monitor crops closely for disease symptoms, and contact our plant pathologist, Lisa Kelly at [email protected] or 0477 747 040 for further information on disease diagnosis.
Minimise the spread of the disease by avoiding movement through infected paddocks and thoroughly removing any infected soil and crop debris from machinery, vehicles and footwear.
