Wind Damage

Following the aftermath of cyclone Debbie some varieties snapped off below the heart. Q252 appears to have been the worst followed by Q183.

There has been some breakage in other varieties but nothing too concerning.

The photos are of the Q252 in the Childers plot where some gusts of wind on the Thursday reached 115km hour at the weather station.

After speaking to growers in the Proserpine area Q252, Q240 and Q183 were hardest hit of the varieties.
