The article reports on a research program initiated by growers at Scion, formerly the Forest Research Institute in Rotorua, New Zealand to determine how septoria leaf blight of young Eucalyptus nitens develops and to find a way to manage it. The characteristic symptoms of the disease are mentioned. The leaf spot fungus include Phaeophleospora eucalypti and Mycosphaerella cryptica. It discusses how the survey was carried out. The results of the survey are presented. The survey results indicate that further cultivation of E. nitens from Victoria should not be encouraged.
