Disease risk assessment guide for macadamia flower blights

2022 | Akinsanmi F | Manual/guide

Flower blights refer to a number of pathogens which can cause significant damage to macadamia flowering. To assist with monitoring and management it is essential to understand the different blights and the conditions in which they are present. As part of the Integrated Disease Management Program for Macadamia, led by the University of Queensland, a risk assessment tool has been developed. This includes visual signs, flower stage susceptibility and importantly temperature and humidity ranges in which each disease proliferates.

Macadamia Nut Borer: Know thy enemy (Dec 2021 MacGroup)

2021 | Griffin K | Presentation

In this presentation AMS Project Support Officer Dr Karina Griffin discusses Macadamia Nut Borer (MNB) identification, monitoring for eggs and parasitism, male pheromone traps, and the effective release of MacTrix wasps, a natural MNB predator. Considerations for the release of MacTrix wasps include wasp feeding and emergence, survival and behaviour, timing and placement in the orchard.

Environmental effects on flower blight pathogens

2021 | Akinsanmi F, Prassannath K, Galea VJ | Article

Flower blights (grey mould, green mould and dry flower) are important diseases of macadamia. Lack of information on pathogen biology and disease epidemiology in macadamia has hampered control options. Effects of climatic variables including temperature, relative humidity (RH) and vapour pressure deficit (VPD) on the abundance, germination and growth of conidia of four fungal pathogens that cause various flower blights in macadamia were studied.

Innovative mulcher developed by macadamia grower Lance Emery

2021 | Australian Macadamia Society | Video

Lance runs Mill Farm in Nashua in the NSW Northern Rivers region with his wife, Ina. The farm’s productive acres are on very steep country, and over the years Lance has worked hard maximising ground cover and minimising erosion. Watch now to learn about the new machine developed by Lance, protecting ground cover and controlling pest.
