A Prelimiary Report on the Development of Avocado as a Tree Crop and on Factors Affecting Yield in Barbados

The development of organized plantings of Avocado is new to Barbados. Prior to 1972, there was only one area where a pure stand of more than twenty trees could be found. Since then, this number has risen by eight. The newly planted areas consist either of grafted plants or seedling trees. The yield per tree is low and this is mainly due to poor management; the Avocado being related to the position of a backyard tree. It is hoped that with the production of an increasing amount of grafted plants, and an improvement in management practices, that ultimately Avocado production in the island will increase.
