Ahead of the NSW state election on 25 March 2023, the NSW Government caretaker period has commenced. Limited updates will be made to this website during this period.
The 2022-23 edition of the Orchard plant protection guide for deciduous fruits in NSW is the latest in a series of annual publications that have supported the pest and disease management decisions of generations of NSW temperate fruit producers. The guide is recognised as a respected and valuable reference for temperate fruit industries.
Market access negotiations are complex and often require evidence-based crop protection strategies to meet import conditions. In this edition, Jane Muller and Rieks Van Klinken of CSIRO Health and Biosecurity outline the ongoing development and domestic testing of a systems-based protocol for cherries and fruit fly (page 6).
At the time of our review NSW DPI Biosecurity and partner agencies were actively engaged in an emergency biosecurity response following an incursion of the exotic pest varroa mite, first detected in sentinel hives at the Port of Newcastle in late June 2022.
In this edition, we reproduce the DPI Primefact 861 Varroa mites, authored by Doug Somerville, Technical Specialist, Honey Bees and updated by Madlen Kratz, Honey Bee Industry Development Officer.
Dr Sally Bound of the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture provides an update to her popular section on Orchard Crop Load Management (page 131).
Herbicide Mode of Action (MoA) classifications have been updated internationally to capture new active constituents and ensure the MoA system is globally relevant. The global MoA classification system is based on numerical codes that provide infinite capacity to accommodate new herbicide MoA, unlike the alphabetical codes currently used in Australia. In this edition of the guide, we have updated our Herbicide MoA listings to include both the new and old group identifiers. See 'Managing weeds' on page 141.
The guide is available free to commercial fruit growers and is distributed to the following rural retailers and key industry bodies in pome and stone fruit growing regions:
