This research project will be investigating the potential of native endophytic fungal isolates for the
control of Chinee Apple (Ziziphus mauritiana) through a series of progressive trails against seedling,
juvenile and adult plants. The effectiveness of Bioherbicide Australia’s (BHA Pty Ltd) proprietary
stem injection system (InJecta 800®) and Bi-Bak® range of registered and developmental synthetic
herbicides will also be assessed for minimising off-target damage.
