Development and publication of the macadamia industry Integrated Orchard Management booklet (MC14007)
What was it all about?
The macadamia industry benchmarking project (MC15005) found that industry average nut in shell production varies up to five-fold across different producers. This significant variation became a driving force for industry to attempt to gather information to develop consistent production across the board.
This project produced a series of integrated orchard management resources to support Australian macadamia growers, focussing on three key management areas: orchard floor, canopy and drainage.
The project team produced the following resources:
- The Macadamia integrated orchard management practice guide 2016
- A companion booklet featuring grower case studies
- The Integrated orchard management drainage guide 2017
The above resources were extended to industry through field days, MacGroups and conferences to assist growers to run high-productivity orchards through integrated orchard management strategies.
