Event description

Description

The University of Queensland Professor Neena Mitter and her research team at Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation in partnership with the University of Southern Queensland and Central Queensland University, would like to invite the avocado community to an industry stakeholder’s information day.

The day will include presentations and discussions on:

  • Our progress with avocado rootstock tissue culture; this will include access to culture jars containing tissue cultured avocado so participants can experience first-hand what we are discussing,
  • plant/tree performance results from commercially managed field trials,
  • the perceptions of tissue culture from industry and
  • economic and market feasibility of these rootstocks entering the market.

The aim of this information day is to support an understanding of the science, in addition to facilitating discussions on how these plants are transitioning into commercial orchards and the predicted associated economic and industry impacts.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided. Additionally, there will be a tour of the first established field trial, hosted by Donovan Family Investments.

Day starts at 8:30am registration for a 9am start to 3pm; presentations, discussions and field visit included.

This is a free event but please RSVP for catering purposes
