Abstract

The objective of this project was to reduce the vulnerability of the Australian apple and pear industry to climate change by: investigating the potential impacts of a changing climate on winter chill, flowering, fruit sunburn and yield; exploring the effects of adaptation such as netting and dormancy-breaking products; and developing and extending appropriate adaptive responses to industry. The project used a broad range of research and technology transfer activities encompassing field observational data collection, controlled environment experimentation, iophysical modelling, website development, communication and extension.
