Spore counts remain similar to last week

February 15, 2019

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

  • Hinuera – 5000 spores/gram
  • Matamata – 6600 spores/gram
  • Te Poi – 5000 spores/gram
  • Tirau – 20,000 spores/gram
  • Walton – 3300 spores/gram

Lack of any significant rain is limiting spore multiplication still. However, there are  now sufficient numbers on all monitor farms to allow very rapid increases once moisture level is sufficient to support spore replication.
