The research underpinning the introduction of the Crofton weed rust fungus, Baeodromus eupatorii in Australia was supported by the CSIRO, Australian Government through the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC), the Lord Howe Island Board and the Office of Environment and Heritage NSW. The implementation of the community-based release program received financial support in 2015 from the NSW Weeds Action Program administered by the Department of Primary Industries and in 2016 from the NSW Environmental Trust.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the large-scale release program for the Crofton weed rust fungus.
