Dr Nigel Swarts, Senior Research Fellow in the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture, is your go to man for everything relating to cherry and apple tree nutrition, from soil and irrigation, to the molecular and macro level within the tree and through the atmosphere.
He leads two collaborative projects on nitrogen management in tree crop production systems and works with a team of researchers and students to better understand nutrient use efficiency in apple and cherry orcharding.
Nigel loves fruit so much you might just find him sneaking a bite from the ‘free fruit for kids’ bowl at the local supermarket! (Check out your local Tas Country).
