Fruit rot management
The New Zealand avocado industry strategy is to produce a consistent volume of premium quality avocados. Maximising sales and values in all markets and successful development of new markets is highly dependent on providing our customers with fruit of high quality.
An integrated approach to rot control will help mitigate risk factors leading to optimal fruit quality in export markets. Best practice guidelines take a comprehensive and integrated approach to tackle rots so as to provide the greatest likelihood of successful out-turn.
