- The University of Adelaide will present a final report on the results of netting trials in apple and citrus crops on; water usage, micro-climates, tonnages and yield quality.
- Explaining how recent changes to development regulations will potentially reduce the complexity for developers and make it easier to work with local government.
- The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure will present an overview of recent changes to the development regulations related to (horticultural netting, 2018) and will explain how these changes provide benefits for future development in the region. Mr Nelson said the research project has shown that yield class and quality lifted significantly in observed imperial mandarin crops.
Workshop participants will have the opportunity to ask an expert panel questions related to research findings, development application processes, integrated pest management and netting installation and establishment.
