Grower stories

The north Queensland banana industry has been through a tough couple of seasons, up to and including 2017, with pricing being the major factor driving growers returns down.
When Bayer Crop Science introduced new Group 7 fungicide chemistry to the banana industry in 2015, the move was welcomed by many as the next evolution in disease control.
When Luna® Privilege was launched by Bayer Crop Science into the marketplace in 2015, there was a strong determination from industry that the longevity of the fungicide be protected by a comprehensive stewardship program.
As an aerial spray operator working with banana farmers in Tully, north Queensland, Jason Rodda is well placed to judge the impact of new chemistry in the industry.
When Luna® Privilege was released in 2015, Cameron Flegler started using it on his Tully banana farms without hesitation.
The banana industry now has the upper hand in disease management, thanks to the introduction in recent years of new fungicide chemistry with an alternative mode of action to traditional chemicals.
