The MaPP offers a disease diagnostic clinic as a service to the macadamia industry. This provides a platform where growers can report pest and disease problems observed in the field. Additional objectives of this service include:


  • Monitor the impact of known pest and disease problems
  • Accumulation of data over time to shed light on the emergence patterns of specific pests and diseases
  • Ensure the early identification of new pest and disease problems
  • Improve capacity for pest and pathogen identification
  • Inform future disease research focus areas, both in terms of long and short term projects
