Myrtle Rust

Kerikeri myrtle rust response –Daily update 11 May 2017

Tuesday, May 09, 2017

Author: Julie Jonker

No significant news to report today.

Ground teams in Kerikeri have completed inspections of the areas extending 500m out from the two confirmed positive sites.

The situation remains that there are still just two known infected properties. The initial nursery in Kerikeri where the myrtle rust incursion was first detected and a neighbouring residential garden.

All other suspected finds that were sampled have tested negative for myrtle rust. This includes a sample from a nursery in south Auckland.

Today field personnel have partnered with local iwi to mount intensive inspections of coastal areas close to Kerikeri for signs of the fungal disease.

The public message remains - if you believe you have seen signs of myrtle rust - DO NOT TOUCH IT or the plant - take a photo of the rust and the plant. Call MPI on 0800 80 99 66.

Rural flood recovery response event this Wednesday afternoon

The venue has been changed to the Awakeri Hall, White Pine Bush Road 1-4pm

We will have a ‘rolling’ BBQ, thanks to the FarmSource BBQ and FMG food supplies, and a collection of organisations and networks that are able to provide help of various kinds to rural folk as they begin recovering from the flooding.

We envisage just a short opening address by RST introducing who is present and acknowledging help already received. Then the format will be open for folk to eat and talk for the afternoon.
