Potatoes are a versatile vegetable, but growing them can be a challenge.

The soil-borne pathogen can wreak havoc on entire paddocks of crops and render them unsuitable for cultivation.
Citrus Australia CEO Nathan Hancock says NSW citrus crops will be left to rot unless NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard provides citrus growers with immediate information on seasonal workers. From midnight tonight, a new border zone will be created along the Murray river and restrictions for entry into NSW from Victoria will be tightened.
New research by Victorian scientists at the AgriBio Centre is set to increase stonefruit production by helping growers better protect their crops from brown rot. Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) Plant Pathologist and his team have led the development of two new tools and a control strategy to help growers predict, control and prevent brown rot losses in different Australian stonefruit production systems.
