Custard apple communication and extension program (CU16001)
What was it all about?
This program ran from 2016 to 2019 to support custard apple industry awareness and uptake of R&D outcomes and other relevant knowledge. This was primarily delivered through field days/roadshows in each of the country’s growing regions. These events brought growers information on fruit quality, orchard management and post-harvest systems and practices; supported growers in adding value to their businesses; and kept all stakeholders up to date with the latest issues relevant to the custard apple industry.
The project also facilitated other regular communication channels to Australia’s custard apple industry, which included…
- Quarterly newsletter The Custard Apple, available in print and digital form
- Regular email updates from Custard Apples Australia
- The industry website, www.industry.custardapple.com.au.
This project was a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Custard Apple Fund
