Macadamia regional variety trials series 4 (MC17006)
What’s it all about?
This investment is continuing to evaluate the performance of new and emerging macadamia varieties, and will feed information on these varieties through to industry.
The information it generates will ultimately help guide growers in making decisions about new varieties for orchard expansion, development and possible replanting in key growing regions. The varieties it helps commercialise will have benefits including higher and more consistent production of high-quality kernel, resulting in a more profitable and prosperous industry in Australia, based on internationally competitive exports
This trial work carries on from earlier iterations of the regional variety trial series, with the previous project Macadamia regional variety trials – series 3, phase 2 (MC11001) identifying four new varieties for commercial release.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Macadamia Fund
