Avocado rootstock SHSR-04 commercialisation (AV15005)
What was it all about?
This project managed the commercial process for development of the avocado rootstock SHSR-04, which was selected for its commercial level of Phytophthora root rot resistance and potential to provide an alternative to the current industry standard rootstock, Dusa. The project successfully obtained the plant breeders rights for the rootstock and next steps will involve licencing for propagation and sale. Three commercial nurseries with expertise in avocado clonal rootstock development have been considered for assessment and commercial licensing of the rootstock.
This project was a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Avocado Fund
