What was it all about?

AWIA conducted a seminar and workshop on blight management for Walnut producers at Tatura DPI Research Centre 255 Ferguson Rd Tatura Victoria on 18th August 2012.

The workshop was augmented with presentations from AWIA regarding other Walnut R&D being undertaken with joint funding of Hort Innovation (which was then Horticulture Australia Limited) and AWIA on 18th & 19th August.

More than 50 walnut growers were in attendance at the workshop.

The purpose of the seminar was to:

  1. Revisit and revise the material presented to growers in the 2011 Walnut Blight seminar / workshop. This information was made available on the AWIA website.
  2. Present updated technical and extension information on blight management to growers by web site, printed material and group learning.
  3. Review the methods used by growers during the last season, including spray regime, various chemical configurations and the outcomes of various management practices.
  4. Encourage best practice in Walnut Blight Management throughout the Walnut Industry.
