I’m currently enrolled for a PhD in Plant Sciences within the Avocado Research Programme, under the supervision of Prof. Noëlani van den Berg. My current research project focuses on the detection and management of Rosellinia necatrix in avocado orchards. The aim of the study is to assess the microbial consortium present in the rhizosphere of white root rot infected avocado trees. Furthermore, this study will aim to assess the efficacy of fluazinam and biocontrols in white root rot infected avocado trees. We will also explore the application of remote sensing in monitoring the changes in white root disease severity on avocado trees following treatment with fluazinam and biocontrols
