One year on since the detection of TR4 in a Queensland farm, there is a sense of achievement that the disease has been contained to that one farm, but also high expectations that scientists will find a way forward to farming with TR4. ABC Rural discusses with nematologist Tony Pattison some of the projects scientists are working on.
The one-year anniversary comes on the heels of the fourth detection of TR4 on the 166-hectare Queensland farm, which remains under quarantine. The detection involved a single plant which has been destroyed and will be followed by the destruction of surrounding plants.
