Welcome to Chestnuts Australia Inc.

Our Mission Our Organisation is dedicated to the growth of the Chestnut Industry through:

  • Grower Education
  • Promotion
  • Research
  • Sharing of Information

The Association assists members with first hand information on the growing, harvesting and marketing of chestnuts. We aim to achieve these objectives through annual and special meetings, conferences, field days, and farm walks. Personal contact with other members at these and less structured functions are also very important.

*Comprehensive Info to manage Chestnut Blight*

CAI has been working with Agriculture Victoria and preparing a wealth of material for growers, their staff and other support people to undertake a comprehensive survey program.

Some of the material includes:

*On-Farm Chestnut Biosecurity Planner*

Work on the Chestnut Biosecurity Planner has been completed. A hard copy has been posted to each CAI member. The planner is such that you can write notes in each of the sections to assist you in undertaking your own on-farm biosecurity. Use the document also to inform, train and educate your orchard staff!
