NT95003 - Irrigation, Nutrition and Disease Management Strategies

In this project a preliminary survey was conducted for the main type of walnut diseases in Tasmania. Preliminary investigations were conducted to assist in evaluating current and potential control treatments. The information was extended by a series of articles in the grower magazine. As the industry continues to expand towards its production goals and reach an economic critical mass significant challenge to the industry lie ahead. Further extension of information to growers needs to be carried out in order to maximize benefits from this research and development project to date. It is recommended that Webster walnuts continue to conduct an ongoing extension program and appoint necessary resources to facilitate further information transfer.
