2019 Facial Eczema Reports

2019 Facial Eczema Reports

Recording surface soil temps is of immense value in assessing the risk of facial eczema. Farmers could benefit from carrying a probe type soil thermometer in their farm vehicles which is a very worthwhile tool in assessing the risk of FE.   They are also a good tool to check soil temps in the spring before sowing crops or pastures.  Soil thermometers are available on order from most good garden shops.

Please email all spore counts to by 2pm each Thursday. 

If you would like to be emailed this report weekly, please subscribe to our mailing list here.


  1. Spore counts of zero will not appear on the graphs, but will still be recorded as data received.
  2. If outlying high results are received, the y-axis on the graphs will be converted to a logarithmic scale so data at the lower end of the scale can still be read clearly.

Week 16 will be the final report for the year.  Please continue to monitor spore counts locally if they are still high.  Thank you all for your contributions this season.
