Macadamia sector prepares for crop

This article was originally published in Foodnews

AUSTRALIA’s macadamia industry is hoping that this year’s harvest will yield better results than recent years. In order to better prepare farmers to “harness the full potential of this year’s crop”, the Australian Macadamia Society (AMS) is holding a series of workshops for growers in the major producing regions on the Australian east coast. “Everyone is super keen to capitalise on what is shaping up to be a good season,” said Warren Elvery, manager of New South Wales’ biggest macadamia orchard, ‘Victoria Park Plantations’ in Rous Mill. Australian macadamia growers are also investing around AUD3 million (with a further AUD1 million contributed through government-matched funds) in research and promotion. “The industry is looking to 2012 for a change of fortunes. Early indications are promising, and the AMS will do whatever we can to assist growers to maximise their full potential,” said Jolyon Burnett, chief executive of AMS.
