Armillaria root rot is a fungal disease capable of causing serious damage to both young and established orchards.
Although outbreaks are usually localised, eradication of the fungus and replacement of affected trees can involve the grower in considerable expense. For new plantings, thorough clearing of the land is recommended for preventing losses from this disease.
