Caring For You & Our Environment

The YV Fruits Group is an industry leader in sustainable fruit growing. The Group and its members are dedicated to sustainable agriculture through a comprehensive program called Integrated Fruit Production (IFP).

IFP is a system which produces high quality fruit while minimising impact on the environment. The Group was recognised through the Hugh McKay Innovators Award for the conservation value of the system. Features include:

Integrated Pest Management:

The use of predatory and beneficial insects to control insect pests to minimise pesticide applications.

Planting Native Vegetation:

Planting shelter belts of indigenous vegetation to encourage beneficial insects and birds into the orchard and provide travel corridors for animals.

Water Conservation:

Water is conserved through the use of water monitoring technology and crops are irrigated only when necessary.
