Auscitrus build insect-proof greenhouse for citrus Australia

Auscitrus, is an Australian "not for profit" industry organisation comprising citrus growers and nurserymen from each state. Auscitrus is responsible for supply of citrus budwood and seed in Australia. It now claims that the upgrade of their propagation site at Dareton will be the first of its kind on Australian soil. We are talking about a large, $700,000 insect-proof greenhouse for citrus propagation that will help protect the industry from a potential disease outbreak.

Sunraysiadaily.com.au quoted Auscitrus manager Tim Herrmann as saying: "If we were to get a serious diseases from overseas, one of the ways to control it will be to use clean budwood and seeds only. That is, with nurseries using tested budwood out of our scheme, then trees are clean, which means the orchard is clean.”
