The Queensland avocado industry has compiled an Avocado Problem Solver Field Guide. The Guide:
- Provides clear and practical advice that describes, illustrates and recommends prevention and control measures for 98 different pests, diseases and disorders
- Includes details and pictures of 23 beneficial insects and the nine exotic pests and diseases identified as the top risks to the Australian industry
- Is designed for use in the field with A5 size, plastic coated pages and spiro binding that allows the book to lay flat at any page
- Contains 220 pages with over 400 color photographs and comprehensive notes on each disorder.
If enough California avocado growers are interested, the Commission will make a bulk purchase of the Guide. By making a bulk purchase of the Guide, interested California growers can obtain the Guide from the Commission for between $75-$80. In order to determine interest level in the Field Guide, the Commission requests GreenSheet recipients complete the following four-question survey.
