Workshop and roadmap for the way forward for irregular bearing (AV23014)

Key research provider: Wilkie Horticulture

What is it all about?

This project will deliver a plan for the Australian avocado industry to better manage irregular and alternate bearing, a significant challenge for growers.

The project will investigate the causes of these issues, which can vary across regions. Researchers will review scientific studies and survey growers about their experiences and practices. They will also hold a workshop where growers can learn from experts and share their knowledge.

The final product will be a roadmap that outlines the causes of irregular and alternate bearing and provides practical and actionable solutions for avocado growers. This roadmap, a culmination of scientific research and the practical experience of avocado growers, will guide future industry investments in effectively managing these problems.
