Identifying new resistance genes for Panama Tropical Race 4

This project will identify new genetic material associated with resistance to the banana disease Panama Tropical Race 4, with the aim of developing a range of molecular markers. These will be used to screen germplasm in international breeding programs to identify lines and varieties that will ultimately be used by Australian banana growers.

National Fruit Fly Council Phase 4

This project continues funding for the National Fruit Fly Council (NFFC), which consists of federal and state governments, industry representatives and research funders who strategically coordinate fruit fly management in Australia. Fruit fly is one of the biggest trade barriers for horticulture products. In 2016 the cost to Australia was estimated to be $300 million due to control measures and international trade restrictions.

National Bee Pest Surveillance Program: Transition Program

This project will continue the delivery of a national surveillance program for 13 pests (mites and beetles) and pest bees that could carry parasites or cause damage to honey-bee and pollinator-dependent industries in Australia. It is designed to ensure the early detection of high-priority pest incursions, which provides the best opportunity for successful pest eradication.

Study to review automation of banana de-handing

This project is examining whether it is feasible to automate de-handing of bananas. The research team will conduct a time and motion study of banana processing in an operational processing facility and produce a feasibility report into the challenges and immediate opportunities around integrating robotics into de-handing.

Genetics of Fruit Sensory Preferences

This project is exploring how the sensory qualities of fruit, such as taste, smell, look and feel contribute to consumer preferences, purchasing and consumption of fruit, and feeding that information into breeding programs to improve fruit varieties for both the grower and the consumer.

Effective control of Listeria on rockmelons through alternative post-harvest treatment methods

This project is determining the optimum postharvest strategies to reduce the risk of rockmelons being contaminated by listeria, a bacteria found widely in soil, water and vegetation that can cause the disease, listeriosis. Trials will evaluate the effectiveness of five common sanitisers against listeria and make best practice recommendations for growers.

Integrated disease management of black core rot in citrus

This project is developing tools for the effective management of citrus black core rot, which causes internal rot and bitter flavours in infected fruit that is often undetected until it reaches the juicing plant or kitchen bench. It aims to unravel the disease cycle, including sources of inoculum and timing of infection. A post graduate will be involved throughout the project to increase the future research capability of the Australian citrus industry.

Innovation at Work

This project is exploring innovative ways to deliver RD&E within horticultural industries in Australia through collaborating with private sector agribusiness advisers, who are often a trusted ally of their grower clients. A range of activities has been designed to enhance adviser and grower awareness of relevant R&D and best management practices, with the aim of achieving on-farm practice change.
