This survey was prompted by uncertainty as to the performance of different varieties of olive in different regions of Australia. In late 2004 and early 2005 a survey of thirty-five growers, together with processors and harvesters in nine climatic regions was conducted. Phone interviews by an experienced olive consultant lasting up to one hour, supplemented by email questionnaires, were the principal means of data collection. The data was subjected to qualitative analysis. The objective of the survey was to investigate growers’ perceptions of performance of olive varieties in a range of climate regions.
