Review and extension of avocado pests and their management (AV19001)
What’s it all about?
To help avocado growers in adopting effective integrated pest management (IPM), this project is exploring potential barriers to IPM uptake and delivering practical information and resources for incorporating IPM on farm. The goal is to help growers improve productivity by reducing fruit losses, improving fruit quality due to pest damage, and reducing unnecessary pesticide applications.
Following surveys of current grower practices and industry understanding of IPM, the project team is tasked with extending clear information and instruction around IPM through a series of workshops, articles and industry fact sheets. Keep an eye out in industry channels for updates and resources.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Avocado Fund
