Clubroot tests

Key Points:

  1. Clubroot disease, is responsible for up to 10% of crop losses each year in Australia

  2. Current diagnosis of clubroot in soil is only possible with complicated DNA-based laboratory tests

  3. Scientists from DPI Victoria and the United Kingdom are developing a rapid and inexpensive on-farm kit that will enable growers to do their own clubroot tests

  4. FARM HYGIENE - keep clubroot out of your farm

    • Clearly signpost limited access areas
    • Restrict access to the property where necessary
    • Require visitors to report to reception, the farmhouse or provide a mobile number for them to call before entering the property
    • Insist on clean equipment being returned to your property
    • Make your hygiene requirements known to visitors.
