Phytophthora root rot in macadamias - producing resilient trees

Phytophthora root rot is a major problem for the Australian macadamia industry. It causes significant yield reductions through slow tree decline and the gradual loss of productivity, and can eventually lead to tree death. Root rot is estimated to cost the macadamia industry more than $20 million per year through lost production. Dr. Femi Akinsanmi, a plant pathologist from the University of QLD talks about how to manage Phytophthora root rot.
