Ongoing project

Growing robust avocados (AV21005)

Key research provider: State of Queensland acting through the Department of Agriculture & Fisheries

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.
