Abstract

The project, ‘Integrated crop management practices to enhance value chain outcomes for the mango industry in Pakistan and Australia’ (HORT/1201/006) is the second phase of the mango production component of the Australia/Pakistan Agriculture Sector Linkage Program (ASLP). The project that ran from 1 October 2010 to 30 September 2015 and followed the ASLP Phase 1 project ‘Development of integrated crop management practices to increase sustainable yield and quality of mangoes in Pakistan and Australia’ (HORT/2005/135).
The overall aim of the project was to enhance the profitability of small landholder mango growers in Pakistan by sustainably improving their yields and fruit quality through improved orchard production, pest and disease management. This was achieved by the coordinated engagement of over 30 researchers from 10 research and extension institutions with guidance from Australian researchers who worked with 41 smallholder mango grower clusters in villages across Punjab and Sindh to address several key issues in mango production that were having significant impact on the livelihood systems of the rural poor in Pakistan
