International Mango Industries and Research & Development on Mango

Mango occupies a unique and important place amongst the fruit crops of India. It is now playing pivotal role in the national economy of the country. Approximately 50% of all tropical fruits produced worldwide are mangoes. With 13.79 million tons, India accounts for almost half of the world production, followed by China, Mexico and Thailand. In fact, the aggregated production of ten countries is responsible for roughly 80% of the entire world mango production. One noticeable fact is that basically all of the mango producing countries (more than 99%) are either developing or emerging. Thus research and development outcome, genetic resource information, IPR related issues; good practices are not well digitized and documented. Read More...

Mango Production in Australia

Mango Production

Mangoes (Mangifera indica) are predominantly grown in the Northern Territory, Queensland, and when combined, produce approximately 95% of the total national crop. In recent years production volumes from the Northern Territory have grown to the point that it now equals production from Queensland. Mangoes are also grown in Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

Harvest Windows

The seasonal harvest starts in the Northern Territory and Western Australia in September, followed by Queensland's dry tropical regions (Townsville / Burdekin / Bowen) in mid-November, Mareeba / Dimbulah in early December, Central Queensland in late December, and South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales in January.

Production Volumes

Total volume of fruit marketed fluctuates from year to year, due to seasonal conditions and the irregular bearing nature of the crop. .... Read more

Mangoes in Western Australia

Mangoes are grown commercially in Western Australia from Kununurra in the north to Gingin in the south. They can be grown further south, but mostly for home consumption. Trees grown south of Carnarvon need to be managed differently due to their susceptibility to frost and pseudomonas bacteria. 

Australian industry

Mangoes are now one of the major horticultural crops in Australia. Australian production has seen dramatic growth over the past 15 years, but remains small on a global scale.

Queensland currently produces the majority of Australia’s mangoes. However, significantly increasing volume is coming from the Northern Territory and a steep rise in production has also occurred in Western Australia.

Western Australian industry

Due to the geography of Western Australia, it is possible to produce fruit from September through to April. Kununurra produces the earliest fruit, followed by Broome, Carnarvon.... Read more

New mango hybrid NMBP-1243

Three new mango varieties have been developed by the National Mango Breeding Program (NMBP). NMBP-1243 is a hybrid cross between Irwin and Kensington Pride (KP). Yield is medium to heavy and consistent year to year. The fruit has an average weight of 507 grams.

It has a strong red/pink blush over a pale yellow background and similar flavour to KP. This is an early season variety maturing two to four weeks earlier than KP. Hot water dipping and vapour heat treatment cause little damage. NMBP-1243 is licensed and protected under Australian Plant Breeder’s Rights legislation.

Productivity

Medium to heavy yield, consistent year to year.

Fruit weight

The average fruit weight is 507g with 47% in the 460–540g range.

Harvest timing

NMBP-1243 maturity is early season. Typically fruit will ripen on the tree two to four weeks earlier than Kensington Pride at the same location.

New mango hybrid NMBP-4069

NMBP-4069 is a hybrid cross from parents Van Dyke and Kensington Pride (KP). It has potential for very high yields. The fruit has an average weight of 378 grams. The skin has a soft pink to red blush over a yellow background and is consistent through the whole canopy. It has a sweet, rich KP-style flavour with a slight tang. It is a mid-season variety maturing between KP and R2E2. NMBP-4069 is licensed and protected under Australian Plant Breeder’s Rights legislation.

Productivity

Medium to heavy yielding variety with a tendency for biennial bearing. Tree yield has varied greatly with extremely high yields recorded on some individual trees in some years.

Fruit weight

The average fruit weight of NMBP-4069 is 378g. 

Harvest timing

Maturity is early to mid-season. In Kununurra the harvest has varied between one week earlier and two weeks later than Kensington Pride. In.... Read more

New mango hybrid NMBP-1201

NMBP-1201 is a hybrid cross between Irwin and Kensington Pride (KP).

Yield is greater and more consistent than KP. The fruit has an average weight of 361 grams. It has a soft red to dark red blush over a yellow background and sweet, rich KP-style flavour with a slight tang. It is an early to mid-season variety maturing up to two weeks earlier than KP. It can tolerate hot water dipping and VHT. NMBP-1201 is licensed and protected under Australian Plant Breeder’s Rights legislation.

Productivity

Medium to heavy yielding with a tendency for biennial bearing.

Fruit weight

The average fruit weight of NMBP-1201 was 361g with 24% of fruit in the 460?540 gram range. 

Harvest timing

NMBP-1201 matures early to mid-season. In some seasons, harvest has been up to two weeks earlier than Kensington Pride at the same location.

Satellites and guns to help supercharge the nation's mango harvest

Researchers and Northern Territory mango growers are combining high-resolution satellite imagery with data from hand-held fruit-scanning guns to better map variations in tree health, crop yield and fruit maturity. If successful, the results could help growers more easily determine optimum picking times, and ensure the most efficient use of labour.

Hort Innovation chief executive officer John Lloyd said the application of the near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) gun – which measures fruit dry matter content, and therefore maturity – with satellite imagery is an exciting prospect.  Mr Lloyd said crop monitoring tools such as the NIRS gun and  satellite technology are evolving rapidly. As such, this trial provides aunique opportunity to not only integrate these technologies for more comprehensive results, but also ensure the Australian mango industry ‘keeps up with the Jones’s’ in terms of evaluating and adopting new technologies. “Ther....

North Queensland Manbullo mangoes set sail for Asia

3,250 cartons of Manbulloo mangoes grown in North Queensland set sail for Asia in December from the Port of Townsville in refrigerated containers on Mariana Express Lines’ Kota Nasrat container vessel.

Manbulloo’s Quality and Export Manager Scott Ledger said that the export shipment was a great milestone for the business.

“Our team have been very busy heat-treating and packing mangoes over the past week at Manbulloo’s facility in Giru ready for export,” said Mr Ledger.

“Packing the mangoes directly into the refrigerated container at the packhouse, then exporting out of the Port of Townsville, means there is less physical handling of mangoes and the time in the supply chain is shorter, giving us greater control and confidence to deliver high quality mangoes to our customers,” he said.

The mangoes undergo vapour heat treatment at Manbulloo’s facility for control of fruit fly, which is a requirement for export .... Read more
