What do I do if I find it?

  • Report any suspect signs of CGMMV immediately to DAFWA’s Pest and Disease Information Service on 1800 084 881.
  • Alternatively, download DAFWA’s MyPestGuide Reporter app to your smart phone, take a photo and follow the prompts on the device.
  • Growers can submit symptomatic leaf samples and seeds to DAFWA's diagnostic laboratory service (DDLS). Refer to the DDLS web pages for details or call (08) 9368 3351.

When sending samples, package the leaves between sheets of absorbent paper, such as newspaper, to prevent them getting crushed in transit and enter the locality where collected, date and collector’s contact details. It is important not to post specimens on a Thursday or Friday. This avoids deterioration while in transit over the weekend.
