Table Grape Harvest Aus

The table grape harvest starts in late October/November around towns like Emerald, North Burnett and St George amongst others. This will mean jobs a plenty for harvest workers and fruit pickers once everything is in full swing.

But growers are saying that grape harvest could be set back by low grade fruit. ABC.net.au interviewed Sue Allen, who farms 15,000 grapes a year. Mrs Allan stated that the biggest problem the industry has is growers jumping the gun to enter the market and fetch the good early prices.

Mrs Allan went on to say conditions were good and growers need to maintain a high standard to avoid a consumer backlash. If the consumer doesn’t buy, sales go down, the prices go down, so even if you’ve got top quality fruit, you can still be getting prices that are not going to cover your production costs.

Quality is the key from our point of view as well, good quality keeps the consumers happy, which helps keeps sales strong, amongst other economical factors. When there’s a demand for goods and there’s a need for staff to help meet that demand, which means jobs. We hope to see a healthy harvest over the coming months and lots of harvest jobs on offer.
