LEAF SPOT is the most serious disease of celery in Western Australia, and causes heavy losses in many crops during the cold wet months of June, July and August.
The disease is incited by the fungus Septoria apii Chester, and was first recorded in this State at Osborne Park in 1923.
Since then it has become a limiting factor in the production of marketable celery during the winter months.
