NSW DPI mandarin growing manual

Summary

Front cover of the Australian mandarin production manual

An Australian mandarin production manual has been released by NSW DPI that provides a comprehensive guide to production basics and latest research. The manual was put together by Sandra Hardy, Dr Pat Barkley, Dr Michael Treeby (all former NSW DPI), Mal Smith (QLD DAF) and Graeme Sanderson (NSW DPI citrus research officer).

The manual was produced as part of a recently completed Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) citrus development project in Bhutan.

The manual covers all of the main cultural practice and development considerations including:

  • current and new mandarin varieties
  • crop management and variety selection to grow seedless and low-seed fruit
  • rootstocks and compatibility with mandarin varieties
  • planning new mandarin orchards
  • diseases and disorders

The Australian mandarin production manual is available from dareton.office@dpi.nsw.gov.au (03) 5019 8400, Western Local Land Services, Buronga gregory.moulds@lls.nsw.gov.au and Citrus Australia.
