Wattle Rust is Back


The wattle rust that was identified roughly 4-5 years ago has made its return in KZN. Its been lying dormant during the draught. Now with the wetter conditions the wattle rust has manifested itself once again. The above photos were taken in the KZN midlands in the Richmond area.

All wattle farmers should be aware of this problem once again.
