Fusarium Wilt disease outbreak

Fusarium Wilt disease outbreak

Stephen Alexandar from Teagasc contacted IOA to let them know that there is an outbreak of Fusarium wilt disease in the North County Dublin area on a small number of conventional commercial lettuce glasshouse units. It’s a problem in that once it gets into a nursery it can be difficult to get rid of and there is no known cure.

There is also information on the Teagasc website and AHDB website.
