Fruit canker disease decimates mango trees in Gulu & Nwoya districts

The fruit canker disease has destroyed hundreds of mango trees in Gulu and Nwoya districts. The disease attacks mango leaves and fruits of both natural and grafted species. Farmers in both districts say that the disease started appearing between July and October this year, during the heavy rains that fell at that time. The disease has since persisted, attacking young and mature mango fruits, leaves and flowers.

Charles Akena, the administrator of the Northern Uganda Media Club (NUMEC) in Gulu city stated that he has observed that mangoes on the trees in their compound are rotting away. He says that the disease has also affected several mango trees in his village in Koch Goma sub county in Nwoya district.
