Regional Reports


Darwin and Katherine

Harvest is increasing across the region. Some scattered isolated showers have been present over the past week, but generally conditions have been good for picking and fruit ripening.

In Katherine, small volumes have been picked and dispatched from early picking. Harvest volumes will build in late October and throughout November.


Harvest is still slow at the moment with only early picking in some orchards.  

Burdekin and Bowen

Some early R2E2 are getting close to harvest. Extended flowering and fruit set has trees with fruit at various growth stages. Principal harvest remains on track to commence in mid- November.

Mareeba and Dimbulah

Fruit set has been reasonably good across the region, but some orchards have a lighter crop. Crop harvest of early fruit is predicted to commence in early December with large volumes from mid-December to February / March for late season varieties.

South East and Central Queensland

Flowering and fruit set across this diverse region has been mixed. While some growers are reporting good fruit set, others are reporting fruit set below their expectations.

The AMIA team will add to these regional descriptions as more information becomes available.
