Opportunities for engagement
Opportunities are available to organisations to participate in a variety of on- site initiatives and in collaboration with DPI and others on the Testbed.
The Testbed has three elements and will be activated over stages:
- Stage 1 - Alstonville site (6 blocks) - this existing plantation will be exposed to a variety of treatments to assist and demonstrate to producers how to increase productivity, production longevity and quality
- Stage 2 - Wollongbar site (3 blocks) - this will be a greenfield plantation which can inform and assist new entrants to maximise productivity and address future market and environmental demands.
- Stage 3 - Workforce & Education - A variety of producer education, workforce training and community activities and programs that will support regional industry development and capability will be rolled out concurrently with the activation of Stages 1 and 2.
Opportunities for technology companies include demonstration trials and collaborative R&D around the Testbed. If you wish to apply to have your product displayed within the Testbed please fill out the Request for Opportunity Form
Opportunities for producers include education days but also advisory into future design and new initiatives to be showcased at the Macadamia Testbed. For more information contact Kevin Quinlan, Leader Northern Horticulture.
