CEREAL eelworm (Heterodera avenae) is a potentially serious disease of crops which was seen in the Geraldton area for the first time in the 1966-67 season.
It was first identified in this State at Beverley in 1958 and later near Northam in 1963.
The Geraldton region has been the only area found to be affected since.
The disease was identified on eight properties in 1966-67, and a further ten properties in 1967- 68. There are indications that many more properties could be affected in varying degrees.
