Banned spray may be used on apples

Nicholson, B. (1990) Banned spray may be used on apples. The West Australian, 12 April 1990. p. 3 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by Brendan Nicholson.

A small outbreak of apple scab fungus in Western Australia, previously eradicated, prompted the suggestion of reintroducing a previously banned chemical, phenyl mercuric chloride. The push back against using mercury-based agriculture chemicals is largely grounded in the toxicity of the chemicals and their propensity to accumulate down the food chain.
