Disease that wiped out thousands of citrus crops in Queensland detected in the Northern Territory!!

Citrus Crops are greatly affected by the disease known as "Citrus Canker". This disease causes lesions on leaves, stems and fruits of citrus tree including Lime, Oranges and Grapefruit.

Citrus canker destroyed more than half a million citrus tree in Queensland 14 years ago, and Citrus Australia warned the latest outbreak could impact trade.

It is believed three citrus plants sold from a Darwin nursery and three from a Palmerston nursery were infected with the contagious plant disease, which was uncovered last week.

The NSW Department of Primary Industry has enacted a control order banning all citrus from the Northern Territory, including plants, fruit and leaves.
