The 12th annual Dieback Information Group conference date was held on Friday 28th of June 2013.
The conference presented the latest developments in Phytophthora dieback management, research and on-ground projects from the perspective of speakers from government agencies, local government, industry groups, researchers and conservation groups. These developments change the way we manage Phytophthora dieback and help in our fight against the spread and devastating impact of these pathogens.
