Learn and share at the AVOCO conference - June 25
4 May 2016

The AVOCO conference on June 25 at Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre in Auckland is an opportunity for growers to gather under one roof and learn more from our technical and marketing experts as well as special guest speakers from overseas.

The full line up of speakers has been finalised and includes experts in their respective fields. Registration forms have been emailed and now we encourage all our growers to fill out their details and return the forms as soon as possible to secure a seat. We can confirm this year’s conference features avocado industry leaders from Australia as well as the US.

Technical speakers

Simon Newett has been honoured for his technical contribution to Australia’s industry and his two presentations are sure to be a hit with AVOCO growers.

Biotechnologist Prof Neena Mitter will share her latest avocado research from the University of Queensland while Prof Carol Lovatt from the US will draw on her considerable knowledge of Hass avocado crops to discuss alternate bearing and foliar fertilisation to increase both yield and fruit size.

From New Zealand, Dr David Pattemore, who leads Plant & Food Research’s Pollination & Apiculture team, will discuss what is known about the pollination of Hass avocados in New Zealand.

Dr Marisa Till joined the AIC as the R&D manager in February. She looks forward to sharing with growers at the conference the current AIC research that’s underway.

Marketing speakers

Russell Delroy from Australia is another special overseas guest who will present a summary of production and marketing trends in Western Australia.

You’ll also hear from AVOCO’s directors and AVOCO's marketing team. They will reveal their export marketing plans for 2016-17 – a season that’s shaping up to be a record breaker for the New Zealand avocado industry.

We encourage you to attend this information-packed event.
