In brief: Citrus canker detected in Karama; restricted area declared
A restricted area (RA) has been declared in Karama after citrus canker was found on a lime plant in the northern suburb. The RA has been declared to prevent spread and support eradication of the bacterial disease which has serious impacts on citrus production. Citrus canker does not pose any risks to human health.
It is the 13th citrus canker restricted area to be declared in the Northern Territory since April 2018. Maps of all restricted areas in the Territory are available on the Northern Territory Government website.
