The discovery of Myrtle Rust in Kerikeri at the beginning of May is just confirmation of the inevitable. Commercial Horticulture Magazine has been predicting this would happen for some years and has published several articles about it and the practical steps that could have been done before it arrived and also what can be done after it arrived.
The most important of these articles in the current context were in our issue of February/March last year and the information and advice in them is still totally relevant.
Click here CHFebMar16 to access that issue. The myrtle rust story begins on page 26.
There was further background information on the rust in the Dec15/Jan 16 issue. Click here CHDec15Jan16 for that. Again it’s on page 26.
In Australia the rust was discovered in mid-Summer and appeared to die down as Winter approached leading the authorities there to think they may have got on top of it. But they hadn't. Come Spring, the rust exploded and quickly spread in NSW and into Queensland.
We shouldn't make the same mistake. Every New Zealander should use the Winter months, when conditions may not be as favourable to the rust to proliferate, to search for it and report it so it can be destroyed. And the industries most likely to be affected should prepare themselves for its inevitable return. There will be a small window of opportunity and there is plenty of practical things that can be done.
