One function of Stoneville Research Station, situated in the hills near Mundaring, is to test the wide range of fruit varieties imported from various parts of the world. Some of these have recently been made available to the industry for commercial production.
The process of testing new varieties consists of determining their ease of propagation in the nursery and then checking under field conditions their general rate of growth, conformation and productivity.
Mr. F. Melville, Assistant Chief of the Department of Agriculture's Horticulture Division, is responsible for making the assessments.
