Consistent high yields, optimal quality and low production costs are the goals to be achieved for the new modern olive industry in order to succeed in the world market. Professional technical advice throughout the entire complex process, from planning your grove to harvesting and processing the fruit at the optimal time, is essential in order to accomplish these objectives.
Modern Olives is the leading advising company of the modern olive industry, covering all the aspects related with project development, technical advice and applied research. A highly qualified team with solid horticultural knowledge, large experience in modern olive production combined with a vast national and international olive network and continuous applied research for Australian conditions support our leadership
The development of a new industry in new areas with scarce previous information requires not only olive specialists but also experienced and fully qualified horticulturists. The strength of our team in both areas let us make a careful analysis of the different environmental conditions in order to come up with the best solution for each individual grove. Soil preparation, grove design and maintenance and integrated pest management as well as irrigation and fertilisation are some of the areas where our combination of horticultural knowledge and olive expertise is more significant.
Leandro Ravetti has been leading our technical team since he moved to Australia from Argentina in May 2001. The Modern Olives Technical Team is completed with Pablo Canamasas (Olive oil processing and quality), Claudia Guillaume (Olive oil chemistry and quality) and Simon Robb (Irrigation, fertilisation and soil management).
