Growing robust avocados (AV21005)
What's it all about?
This project is increasing the quality of Australian avocado production by supporting the industry to grow robust produce through targeting the development of pre-harvest management strategies, focusing on soil moisture, soil nutrition, environment, and crop management.
The project will:
- Improve knowledge of how pre-harvest management factors impact avocado robustness.
- Enable prototype decision support tools to be made available.
- Enable pre-harvest test to predict fruit robustness to be made available.
- Provide evidence the project activities and outputs have impacted grower behaviour and acted as a useful resource.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Avocado Fund
