Spore counting continues

May 12, 2017

Spore count results for grass samples brought into the clinic for testing this week:

Area Spore Count Level Date Tested
Hinuera 10,000 Low 11.5.2017
Matamata Nil 11.5.2017
Peria Nil 10.5.2017
40,000 Moderate 9.5.2017
Te Poi Nil 11.5.2017
Wardville Nil 9.5.2017

Only one out of the six samples tested this week is elevated. This shows there are still some spores around, but they have definitely dropped off. As the temperature continues to drop, counts will hopefully continue to fall as well.
