Has the rain affected spore counts?

January 18, 2019

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following :

  • Hinuera – 1700 spores/gram
  • Matamata – 0 spores/gram
  • Te Poi – 1700 spores/gram
  • Tirau – 10,000 spores/gram
  • Walton – 1700 spores/gram

We have seen an increase in spore counts across most monitor farms this week.

Not quite at significant levels yet, but definitely starting to climb.
