Pests & Diseases
The Riverland is fortunate to have a climate that usually does not favour high disease or pest pressure, but occasionally some control measures are needed. In such cases, it is strongly recommended that the least intrusive option is chosen. Knowledge of the disease or pest that is causing the problem will enable the choice of the best control measure.
The following section is divided into a practical and technical section, with subsections of the different diseases and pests that commonly cause problems for Riverland growers.
The practical advice includes an overview and descriptions of diseases and pests, and the technical section has more detailed and extensive advice.
