CT20009 - Integrated disease management of citrus black spot and 'Emperor' brown spot

This project aims to identify and make available complementary Integrated Disease Management (IDM) tools to growers to assist in managing the diseases citrus black spot, ‘Emperor’ brown spot and, to a lesser extent, citrus black core rot. This involves understanding current IDM practices that are favoured by citrus growers for managing citrus black spot and ‘Emperor’ brown spot; developing improved low-input chemical, cultural and biological tools for managing the two diseases; and progressing access to new chemical options for them that would fit into an Integrated Pest and Disease Management (IPDM) program and that can be further considered by Hort Innovation and industry.

Researchers will collaborate with other Hort Innovation funded projects and networks to extend new knowledge and practices from the that will maximize adoption and commercial benefit across the citrus industry.
