The NZ Seed Potato Certification Authority scheme rules now require inspectors to record the incidence of suspected Liberibacter symptoms and for growers to rogue plants with suspected Liberibacter symptoms. Recognising Liberibacter symptoms is therefore very important.

 

Plant & Food Research have generously offered to run a workshop on Liberibacter identification for all seed potato growers and seed potato inspectors. Infected plants will be available for examination in this hands-on session.

When: Monday 23 November 2015 from 1-3 pm

Where: Fitzgerald Room at Plant & Food Research Lincoln, Gerald Street, Lincoln
