A smashing avocado yield result for Great Land!
18 July 2018Significantly higher yield benefit of 10% was recorded for avocado trees treated with Great Land in a field trial at Costa Group's 'Avocado Ridge' farm in the Bundaberg region, Queensland. Harvested in May 2018, the yield gain translated to incremental revenue of $6,250 per hectare, after costs.
The replicated trial was independently overseen by Third Shed Pty Ltd and conducted in a paddock area of three hectares, with 600 avocado trees at 5 years of age.
As the size grading of harvested fruit showed little difference between treatments, the significant difference in yield has been derived from better flowering/fruit set and improved tree health to support a greater number of fruit.
Terragen Biotech gratefully acknowedges ongoing support of the Costa Group in conducting this trial.
