Check fruit for red banded caterpillar

Red banded mango caterpillar (RBMC; Deanolis sublimbalis) is considered a serious threat to Australia’s mango industry. Though, RBMC has not reached any commercial mango plantations in Australia and poses no immediate threat to the mango industry, the pest has caused commercial losses in the order of 10-15% in tropical parts of Asia. It has also been detected at several locations near the northern tip of Cape York Peninsula. 

Building Australian mangoes export

Our ability to create a strong demand for Australian mangoes in new and emerging markets is dependent on our brand reputation. Together we are working, year on year, to create an excellent reputation for Australian mangoes. A reputation for producing quality mangoes that consistently look and taste superior to any other mango on offer.
