Tracing activity has uncovered a new citrus canker detection in Wanguri
In the last week of September another citrus canker detection was made in the Northern Territory (NT) as a result of essential tracing activities. NT Chief Plant Health Officer Dr Anne Walters said the latest detection in Wanguri is directly linked to the original infected property, which is great news as there is still no evidence to suggest that there has been any natural spread of the disease. The infected plant and another potted lime plant have been removed from the property under strict quarantine conditions by authorised citrus canker inspectors.
With this detection in Wanguri, there are now 11 restricted areas in the NT: 10 in greater Darwin and one in Katherine. For more information on the new citrus canker detection, read the media release or visit www.nt.gov.au/citruscanker to view the map.
