The request was successful.

From: Mick Hall

Dear Ministry for Primary Industries,

Has research been carried out within the Kauri Dieback Strategic Science Advisory Group, or any research agency attached to the industry, to determine whether possible effects of Sodium fluoroacetate (1080) on soil microbial activity around Kauri trees could be an aggravating factor in Kauri Dieback disease?

Yours faithfully,
