HOW GROWERS ARE SUSTAINABLY USING THE OLIVE TREE
As olives, extra virgin olive oil and other products of the olive tree become more prominent in people’s diets, how sustainable are they and what effect do they have on the land? To answer that we turn to world-renowned researcher in the olive industry, Leandro Ravetti. Graduating as an Agricultural Engineer in Argentina, Leandro worked for the National Institute of Agricultural Technology in olive production research. In 2001, Leandro moved to Australia where he is a highly respected adviser to the owners of the largest olive groves and olive processing plants in the country.
