The funds will be used to inform growers about current research and development activities and help them adopt best-practice, Hort Innovation Chief Executive John Lloyd said. "Over the past year, Horticulture Innovation Australia has worked with its research partners to deliver more than 130 vegetable industry related research and development projects," he said.

Hort Innovation Chief Executive John Lloyd said the new protocol, which allows the export of nectarines from all over the country, was realised after extensive work from the Australian Government and industry.

"I congratulate the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources and the summerfruit industry for their hard work in achieving the signing of the export protocol with Chinese Government," he said.

Mr Lloyd said export agreements such as that made with China open up opportunities for new markets to try Australian produce for the first time.
"It is really exciting that Australia's nectarine growers will now be able to export their product to the second largest economy in the world," he said.

Hort Innovation Chief Executive John Lloyd said data supplied by the robots showed patterns in yield variations consistent with a lack of pollination. He said at a test site, a grower then moved the pollination block and is already seeing results. "This is a very exciting finding as this technology has the ability to help growers identify issues such as a lack of pollination and address them quickly," he said. "By monitoring the data patterns produced by these robots growers can effectively help ensure the best yield possible."

Mr Lloyd said the robots also showed the capacity to identify individual pieces of fruit, and nuts - making way for fully autonomous tree fruit and nut picking. "This study has provided a real window into a not too distant future where labour hire shortages and associated costs no longer need to be key concerns for tree crop growers," he said.
"Ultimately, this technology will enable growers to save time and money, allowing growers to get their produce to consumers more efficiently while increasing their overall farm gate returns."
Mr Lloyd said the robots were able to identify the fruit load on the trees with an accuracy rating of between 60 to 96 per cent, depending on the commodity and the amount of leaf coverage and sunlight.
"The study showed apples and mangoes that were visible to the human eye were the easiest for the technology to detect, with an accuracy rating of 92 and 96 per cent respectively. This suggests that the technology for these two commodities is the closest to development," he said.
He said the next step is to use these findings to inform further development of robotics systems that autonomously harvest, and also have the potential to undertake tasks such as pest management.
