Citrus disease, big danger

UntitledHere’s another disease sneaking into Australia after decimating citrus industry in USA, and other countries, to the extent that even Florida and California now need to import! Botanist and writer Professor David Mabberley says that the threat to citrus from a variety of bacteria is forever present. One of the diseases that can befall citrus, the citrus greening disease, is one of the most severe plant diseases in the world and can affect any variety of citrus trees. Once a tree is infected, there is no cure. But we must have faith in Trade Minister Robb that he will “deliver us from evil”, the kind which allows cost cutting, lazy biosecurity, enshrined in Free Trade Agreements.
