Pakistan faces huge challenges with its mango production, for example fungal diseases.

A separate team of Australian scientists is advising Pakistan on these early stages, and one of them is Dr Ian Bally, a senior horticulturalist with the Department of Primary Industry in Queensland.

“Pakistan’s production is much higher than Australia’s production. I think Pakistan produces over a million tonnes of mangoes every year, compared with Australia’s production of 35 to 40,000 tonnes. However most of that is consumed locally and very little is exported, probably about one percent. In Australia we export about 10 per cent of mangoes.

“In Pakistan there are small subsistence farmers right up to large corporate farmers, but they all seem to grow with the old traditional methods, so our project is basically looking to introduce some modern methods of nursery production so we can get started with disease-free trees, and to give them methods of controlling some of their diseases.”
