Bright future for old fruit: Pomegranate RD&E Plan

Pomegranates may be one of the oldest cultivated fruits but they are potentially one of the new growth industries for Australian agriculture. Work is just beginning on developing a research, development and extension (RD&E) plan to take the Australian pomegranate industry forward and to identify market opportunities and research needs.


The V International Symposium for Pomegranates and Minor Mediterranean Fruits was to have been held in South Australia in April 2021. We are very disappointed we will be unable to host such an event, but we are working in tough times. Visit the Int. Society of Horticultural Science for details on the next symposium which will be held in Stellenbosch (South Africa) in February 2022.
