Queensland macadamia industry flourishing, with tree sales soaring

In a recent statement, Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries and Minister for Rural Communities Mark Furner, has reported how Queensland’s macadamia industry is flourishing with tree sales soaring, thanks to the strong backing of the Palaszczuk government.

Minister Furner said as many as 2.5 million trees will be established across growing regions in Queensland and New South Wales over the next few years. “Sales of four new Department of Agriculture and Fisheries-licensed varieties had doubled year on year since 2017,” he said on a visit to Lindols Macadamias at Goomboorian. “To ensure that growers can access sufficient licensed varieties, 21 nurseries have been accredited to provide planting material. All of the major tree varieties commercially grown in Australia have been extensively evaluated through trials led by DAF.”

“New varieties are being developed under the national breeding and evaluation program led by DAF and the University of Queensland’s Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI).”

These projects were funded by Hort Innovation through the Macadamia R&D Fund with co-investment by the Queensland Government and other research partners.
