The whole region seems to be suffering from this.
It appears that due to the mild Winter and strange changes in temperature here through the Spring the virus has spread wildly.
Our crop as yet is surviving but I fear its only a matter of time.
I am trying some natural preventatives -
on one patch-
4 litres water, 1 tbsp baking soda, 2 1/2 tbsp veg oil and 1/2 tsp washing up liquid.
I am spraying early morning every 7 days.
on a second patch-
vinegar and water mix
and a control patch with no treatment...
I will update on my progress....wish me luck!
