What was it all about?

This investment is related to the investment Diagnostic capability to detect Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum (CLso) (PT17000). It was about strengthening the ability to monitor for, detect and contain CLso should it arrive on Australian shores. Underpinned by thorough research, the project team developed a fast and reliable testing protocol for the bacterium. Allowing for large-scale, automated and rapid screening, the protocol will be able to facilitate efficient area wide surveillance for CLso, and help support potato seed certification.


This project was a strategic levy investment in both the Hort Innovation Potato – Fresh and Potato – Processing Funds
