Horticulture Branch Research Reports

Published 1967 – 1977

Published annually over 10 years between 1967 and 1977, these reports assembled results and information about the numerous research and demonstration projects, surveys, study tours being conducted by Horticulture Branch research officers. The series comprising approximately 290 papers was edited by the Senior Horticulture Research Officer. Reports were circulated to staff, key industry personnel, packing sheds and industry organisations. They were often used in reporting project outcomes and progress to industry trust funds.

Project report grouping varied from year to year and used both crop and topic categories. Some of the common categories for grouping included citrus, stonefruit, pomefruit, viticulture, vegetables and potatoes, crop physiology, fruit packaging/storage, entomology and plant pathology headings.

From 1981 to 1984, Horticulture Branch Research Reports were combined with Agronomy Branch Research Reports and published as the Plant Industry Division report.
