Australian almond industry – liaison and extension project (AL12000)
What was it all about?
This project, which ran from 2012 to 2016, aimed to make best use of the knowledge and technologies developed by past and present researchers, to drive innovation in the almond industry and facilitate productivity and profitability gains.
The project had a role in delivering the latest information from researchers to growers on key topics, such as increasing yields, improving input efficiency and better managing risk, as well as industry best practices. It involved the delivery of field days, forums, fact sheets, videos and training courses.
During the project period there were also almost 40 committee meetings covering processing, production, plant improvement and market development; almost 100 R&D project meetings; and international study tours to New Zealand, the United States of America and Spain.
The team also provided guidance on future R&D priorities, including research to improve rootstock and varietal material, address pest and disease issues, and enhance the efficiency of pollination services, chemical, nutrient and water inputs.
