2019 Australian macadamia crop reaches 43,500 tonnes in-shell

Australian macadamia growers have produced a crop of 43,500 tonnes in-shell @ 3.5% moisture (46,600 tonnes in-shell @ 10% moisture) for the 2019 season, announced the peak industry body, the Australian Macadamia Society today.

The result is slightly higher than the industry’s previous forecast of 42,900 tonnes in-shell at 3.5% moisture (46,000 tonnes at 10% moisture) and is based on actual factory receipts of the Australian Macadamia Handlers Association (AMHA) until the end of October.

AMS CEO Jolyon Burnett said that despite the impact of the unusually long, hot dry Summer early in the year, harvest conditions throughout the 2019 season were favourable and kernel quality was very good.
