Macadamia Industry Benchmark Report 2009-2015
This report summarises macadamia farm yield and quality results for the 2009 to 2015 production seasons. Many of the yield benchmarks presented are based on tonnes of saleable kernel per bearing hectare as this is a widely accepted measure of orchard productivity. Results are divided into the following sections:
- Farms and plantings
- Yield and quality for all farms
- Yield and quality for top performing farms
- Yield and quality by region.
This report has been produced as part of the “Benchmarking the macadamia industry 2015–2018” project (MC15005). This is a joint initiative of the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, the University of Southern Queensland and NSW Department of Primary Industries, with support from the Australian Macadamia Society.
The project has been funded by Horticulture Innovation Australia Limited using the macadamia levy and funds from the Australian Government. The Queensland Government has also co-funded the project
