Collaboration between Australia and India addresses climate change impact on mango regions

Researchers Dr James Makinson, Associate Professor Robert Spooner-Hart and Professor James Cook from Western Sydney University’s Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment, will investigate mango varieties and their pollinators in India and Australia following an Australia-India Council grant. The innovative project aims to identify the needs of different mango varieties in the two countries and make industry recommendations on planting regimes in response to climate change.

Research lead Dr James Makinson from the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment said changing climatic conditions in Australian and Indian mango growing regions require a renewed approach to pollination to future-proof the industry.
