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.
