Abstract

THE following report deals with the many aspects of fruit growing both technical and commercial covered during a tour of three overseas countries undertaken on behalf of the Department of Agriculture and the fruitgrowers of Western Australia.

In the course of the three and a half months spent on this work, 13 research establishments were visited and contacts were made with research personnel both within these organisations and elsewhere.

Visits to commercial fruit growing areas were made with extension officers and these included brief visits to packing houses.

Altogether I had discussions with 127 research and extension personnel and industry representatives.
