The pests and diseases project took place from 2015-2019 and clarified the identity of the more abundant pest and disease agents and their pest status in Australian truffle orchards. The manual and field guide have been produced as a resource for Australian truffle growers to identify the risks posed by these agents and relevant details to help prevent them from affecting truffle production.

Keeping an eye on pests how to report a suspect pest
Any unusual plant pest, disease or weed should be reported.
Reporting hotlines operate in both Australia and New Zealand (numbers shown below).
Pests can also be reported using apps, such as MyPestGuide™ for Australia, that allow you to submit a photo of the pest or symptoms.
Every report is taken seriously and handled confidentially. Management of calls varies in different areas, but to the same end.
