Happy Harvest 2019    View this email in your browser

Macadamia harvest has begun! 

Macadamia harvest is now well underway in the largest-producing region of Bundaberg and has also just commenced on farms in northern New South Wales and south-eastern Queensland. The season’s growing conditions have been dry but largely favourable to date, starting with good rain prior to flowering and a strong nutset in Spring.

Macadamias are harvested after the nuts fall to the ground and harvest occurs every two to four weeks for several months. 

This is one of the busiest times on the orchard and we wish all our macadamia farmers a successful 2019 harvest.
