Summary

"Since 1991, avocado growers in Tuckombil have been closely monitoring soil health in their orchards ... In 1994, the growers met Dr. Anna Williamson ... who was developing biological fungicide ... In 1998 the growers turned to NSW Agriculture's Environmental Centre for Excellence at Wollongbar for assistance. Dr. Lukas Van Zwieten and Mr. Matthew Ayers undertook a preliminary study to investigate the effects of copper fungicides on soil health ... The findings from this study ... were the catalyst for Tuckombil Landcare and NSW Agriculture to develop a project that would investigate not only the effects of agricultural chemicals and practices on soil health, but also the implementation of amelioration strategies."--P. 1-2.
