August 24 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

HMA NSW has organised an event to update on the latest in fruit care, covering important topics such as how to deal with fruit fly, what is happening with the newly introduced citrus canker and other potential threats, and a guide to identifying tomato/potato psyllid.
