SAS has produced a colour poster on papaya diseases in Australia. This poster features the 8 major diseases that affect papaya crops along with two exotic diseases, which threaten papaya if they were introduced to Australia.

The poster provides photographs of  the eight major diseases found in Australia. In addition two serious exotic diseases – bacterial crown rot and papaya meleira or sticky disease are included in order to assist growers in identifying these diseases should they be found here.
