The benchmarking project is supporting improved productivity and profitability within the Australian
macadamia industry. The current project builds on previous benchmarking and best practice work conducted
since 2001.

Yield, quality and planting information has been collected annually from macadamia farms throughout Australia
since 2009. This information is provided either directly by growers or by processors on their behalf. Cost of
production data has also been collected annually since 2013.

Each season all benchmarking participants receive a confidential, personalised report that compares their
individual farm performance with the average performance of similar farms based on a range of criteria
including region, locality, farm size, management structure, irrigation status and tree age. These reports
highlight individual and average farm performance trends over multiple seasons.

This industry report has been produced to provide growers, processors, consultants, investors and other industry stakeholders with a summary of yield, quality and cost of production trends within the Australian macadamia industry.
