Research aides Western Australia growers to make the most of water

Shade netting and high density planting are two strategies being encouraged for Western Australian vegetable and fruit growers to help make the most of water. The WA Horticulture Update 2021 -from November last year- saw research results presented on the research projects looking at using water more efficiently to reduce costs and improve productivity, profitability and sustainability.

The WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) has been working with the avocado industry and vegetable growers at North Wanneroo to trial new technology and examine improved management practices.

The work is being delivered through Hort Innovation, under the National Tree Crop Intensification in Horticulture Program's investigation into the potential of avocado, almond, citrus, macadamia and mango system intensification.
