Climate change and macadamia management – Bundaberg (Dec 2021 MacGroup)

2021 | Kojetin L | Presentation

At the MacGroups, Industry Development Manager Leoni Kojetin presented on the changing climate and the implications for managing your macadamia orchard. For most regions, hotter and more frequent hot days, as well as reduced rainfall with increased variability will mean changes to the crop cycle and current pest and disease risks.

Managing storm damage (Dec 2021 MacGroup)

2021 | Searle C | Research report/Update

With the summer storm season upon us, growers are urged to manage risks and minimise the negative effects of unpredictable weather events. But when an orchard sustains storm damage, how do you prioritise the clean-up and give damaged trees the best chance of recovering? Dr Chris Searle provides triage guidance for young and established orchards following severe weather, as well as preventative measures to mitigate damage.

Macadamia Nut Borer: Know thy enemy (Dec 2021 MacGroup)

2021 | Griffin K | Presentation

In this presentation AMS Project Support Officer Dr Karina Griffin discusses Macadamia Nut Borer (MNB) identification, monitoring for eggs and parasitism, male pheromone traps, and the effective release of MacTrix wasps, a natural MNB predator. Considerations for the release of MacTrix wasps include wasp feeding and emergence, survival and behaviour, timing and placement in the orchard.

MacAlert - December 2021

2021 | Australian Macadamia Society | Manual/guide

Key messages this month include: • Macadamia nut borer (MNB). Monitor for MNB and release MacTrix effectively. • Spotting bugs. Keep monitoring for spotting bug, using late season techniques like drop sheets. • Young tree pests. If you have younger they can be severely affected by pests in summer. • Nutritional demand is increasing as trees need to support developing nuts. • Tree water requirements are generally at their peak and will remain high through to harvest. • With heavy rain expected, large organic matter applications need careful thought. • Storm season is here again and you need to be prepared to minimise impact and deal with any damage. • Have you got all your preparations for the Christmas/New Year period in place? • Benchmarking data collection is underway for the 2021 season. • AusMac2022 is just around the corner, register now.

The benefits of full row tree removal, cover crops and regenerative practices with grower Rex Harris

2021 | Australian Macadamia Society | Video

For the past several years the Harris family’s macadamia farm outside Bangalow on the NSW Far North Coast has been going through a transformation. Rex Harris, his wife Lynette, sons Carl and Daniel, farm manager Mark Jones and agronomist Ray O’Grady have all collaborated to convert the orchard from a monoculture to a polyculture farm. This includes practices such as tree removal, planting cover crops, composting and many more learnings. In this video Rex explains how they did it.
