Brown Spot is a serious fungal disease of passion fruit in this State.
Successful crop production is dependent on adequate disease control in the plantation.
BROWN SPOT is found in plantings throughout Western Australia. Severe outbreaks of the disease have occurred in most districts, including Serpentine, Manjimup, Nannup and Denmark.
Although isolated young plantings may remain healthy for two or three years, the disease eventually becomes established in the vines.
