ACIAR’s horticulture research program aims to improve the productivity, profitability and sustainability of fruit, vegetable and ornamental crop production in developing countries and Australia. Emphases are to improve the utility and efficiency of supply chains, optimise the quality and suitability of produce for market requirements, and minimise pre- and post-harvest losses of fruit and vegetable crops. The ACIAR horticulture program will increasingly focus on a complete supply chain approach to crop production. This approach will aim to identify and address multiple constraints to individual horticultural industry development which often arise simultaneously throughout the supply chain and can potentially reduce the impact of single issue interventions. For further information on the program research themes and priority research areas, refer to the attached fact sheet.
