Porina damage from late moth flights may be apparent

Porina damage especially in Hawkes Bay, Taranaki, Wairarapa, Ruhapehu, Taupo districts and Manawatu, from caterpillars arising from late February/March flights may only now becoming apparent.

Careful consideration needs to be given to control options as spring growth may occur before damage becomes such that the plants are lost from pastures.
