Resin Canal Discolouration

Advances in what we know about RCD

A successful partnership between the ARC Training Centre for Innovative Horticultural Products, School of Land and Food, University of Tasmania and the Northern Territory Department of Primary Industry and Resources is driving research to help understand the causes and control of resin canal discolouration (RCD).

Resin Canal Discolouration—what the research is telling us

Resin Canal Discolouration has become a major issue for the mango industry over the past two seasons. Fruit from the Darwin region is particularly affected, although some incidence has been found in other varieties and regions throughout Australia. This issue negatively impacts the whole industry by damaging market confidence, thereby reducing sales.
