Abstract

A history of the eradication of Nectria galligena from apple trees in Tasmania following detection of the Cylindrocarpon conidial state of the fungus in three apple orchard blocks at Spreyton on the central north coast of Tasmania in 1954 is reported. The eradication program was finalised in 1991 when a survey of previously infected orchards found no signs of the disease.
