Time lapse video captures spring Psa-V infection
21 August 2015

Tayah Ryan from Fruitfed Supplies set up a time-lapse in spring 2014 to capture the expression of sepal browning and leaf spot in Hayward kiwifruit.  The plant in the time-lapse is an untreated control vine as part of a research trial.

It is interesting to see the timing of infection in relation to rainfall as well as the severity of symptom expression in what was largely seen as a low pressure season. This visualisation is a reminder of what spring can bring.

Crop protection products available this season will be discussed at the upcoming industry meeting.
