What was it all about?

The main objectives of this project were to:

  • Update the AVOMAN avocado orchard management software
  • Update the AVOINFO avocado reference database software, and
  • Conduct regional productivity group meetings/farm walks with growers.

This project built on two previous projects undertaken between 1993 and 1998 which developed the first commercial versions of the AVOMAN and AVOINFO software and formed the Regional Productivity Groups.

The updating of the AVOMAN software was undertaken to bring the recommended orchard management practices and other agronomic information up to date and to enhance the capabilities and usability of the software for avocado growers. Input from software users, the AVOMAN industry planning committee, and from other scientists and extension staff working on avocado were an essential part of the updating process.
