Guest Speaker 12th June 2014 – Tony Cooke from Dept of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry

Tony has many years of experience in the pathology of horticultural crops including some that would fall into the ‘rare fruit’ category.  He has been involved in the publication of two books on fruit and vegetable diseases which are reference material for the diagnosis of plant diseases in a wide range of crops.  He has firsthand knowledge of field-based and postharvest pathology as well as research and crop disease diagnostics.  Currently he is involved with an aid project in Pakistan, producing a nursery manual for mango farmers.  Photography is a key area of interest.
