Commercial partners for new Phytophthora root rot resistant avocado rootstock

5pm (Sydney time)
Friday 24 February 2017

Expression of Interest: Commercial partners for new Phytophthora root rot resistant avocado rootstock (AV15005)

Horticulture Innovation Australia Limited (Hort Innovation) is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from all capable commercial entities in the nursery and avocado industry for the Australian licence to evaluate and commercialise a new Phytophthora root rot resistant avocado rootstock.

The new rootstock was developed from the Australian avocado industry “Rootstock Improvement Program”. This program was led by Sunshine Horticultural Services Pty Ltd (SHS) and funded by Hort Innovation and levy-paying avocado growers.

The rootstock with the experiential code ‘SHSR-04’ was identified in 2004 as an escape tree in an orchard infested with Phytophthora root rot.  Subsequent field evaluation of a population of ‘Hass’ trees propagated to cloned ‘SHSR-04’ rootstock demonstrated a high level of resistance to Phytophthora root rot. While a full evaluation of the rootstock across different environments is yet to be completed, its minimum performance is expected to be similar to that of current commercially available Phytophthora root rot resistant rootstock, ‘Dusa’.

The licensing rights to be provided to successful partners will include rights for evaluation with the option for commercial rights for the propagation and sale of the rootstock in Australia.

Applicants will need to demonstrate experience in the following key areas:

  • Capability to produce high quality clonal rootstocks for use across a range of avocado varieties
  • Capability to produce high quality avocado varieties propagated to clonal rootstocks;
  • Demonstrated systems in risk management. The preferred licensee shall be Avocado Nursery Voluntary Accreditation Scheme (ANVAS) or Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia (NIASA) accredited
  • Capability to conduct commercial scale evaluation of rootstocks
  • Capacity to market and sell quality rootstocks within the Australian avocado industry
  • Capacity to manage IP and commercial arrangements related to the protection and commercialisation of rootstocks in Australia.

Hort Innovation recognises that there are a limited number of companies with expertise in clonal rootstock propagation. In developing a response to the EOI, Hort Innovation welcomes submissions from both individual entities or from joint applicants that combine the skill and expertise of one partner’s capabilities in clonal propagator with that of an experienced nursery that has the skills and resources to support sales of final material across the Australian avocado industry.

The due date for responses to the EOI is 5pm, February 24, 2017.
Previous applications need not re-apply and will be considered with the evaluation.
To obtain details of the performance of the rootstock, key licensing terms, selection criteria and requirements for responding to the EOI please send a request to TechMAC at admin@techmac.com.au. For any questions you have regarding the EOI process please or contact Dallas Gibb, Managing Director, TechMAC Pty Ltd on mobile 0458 38 5278.

Horticulture Innovation Australia is looking for an organisation to manage all aspects of brand and reputational risk for Australian Mushrooms in the project Mushroom marketing program support & brand risk management (MU16517).

  2. Commercial freedom.

The key, internal areas, where brand risk is (usually) generated are:

  1. Poor quality, food safety threats and product recalls
  2. Poor customer service or experience (brought about by dissatisfied or not-in-sync with the brand philosophy).

Externally areas are:

  • Behaviour by consumers—boycotting the products or services of the company due to change in perception brought about either by a change in the brand differentiator communication or experience OR due to changing social values
  • Retail space capturing, buying out of stocks, removing stocks on display etc. tactics by competition
  • Political or community opposition to the brand to do business within a geographical region which limits its ability to develop.
