CSIRO - Crofton Weed Rust release | Lyncoranne Angus

We are currently involved in the CSIRO large-scale release program of a new biological control agent for crofton weed in New South Wales.

The rust fungus should produce orange coloured pustules on young crofton weed leaves. 

The rust fungus has been successfully transferred from the original CSIRO propagated infected plants to the young existing weeds on our targeted site.
