Orchard soil characterisation

Understanding how soil attributes correlate with orchard production could play an essential role in improving our horticultural systems. In partnership with Plant & Food Research, NZ Avocado has been awarded a Rural Professionals Fund to characterise soils in some of our avocado orchards. This project is the first to collect a combination of biological, chemical, and physical soil data and look to correlate them with yield and leaf and fruit nutrient levels.
