Abstract

Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) crops in Western Australia were surveyed for the presence of asparagus rust (caused by Puccinia asparagi) and asparagus stem blight (caused by Phomopsis asparagi). Neither disease was detected during a physical survey of 48% of the properties growing asparagus in the state.
