Almond Budwood Orders
Thank you for your support and use of the Australian almond budwood repository. Budwood from our sites are managed by the Almond Board of Australia and undergo annual winter pruning, deflowering, visual pest and disease monitoring and virus testing for Prune Dwarf Virus and Prunus Necrotic Ringspot Virus. Management practices are undertaken to exact hygiene standards including sterilising equipment between pruning trees and taking cuttings. The ABA supports the use of high health status plant material and actively promotes the purchase of trees from nurseries using ABA sourced budwood.
A deposit of 10 cents (ex GST) per bud must accompany this order to register your order.
You will receive an acknowledgment that your deposit has been received and your order registered. The deposit is non-refundable, except in the event of supply not being available. In the event of the budwood not being available to fill your order, you will be notified as soon as this is determined and your deposit will be returned.
The ABA will forward a formal tax invoice based on the full rate plus packaging and postage expenses at cost, less the deposit paid. Note: GST will be added to all amounts as required. Payment terms are strictly 30 days from the date of invoice. Overdue invoices will incur an additional charge at the ABA’s discretion of 6 cents per bud and external debt recovery will commence after 45 days with all collection costs invoiced as an additional charge.
Budwood cutting will be undertaken weekdays in a manner to maintain short delivery time frames and to avoid budwood being delayed in transit over weekends. Two weeks’ notice is required from the time of placing the order until cutting will commence. You will be contacted to ensure the delivery fits in with your nursery operations. Please note that the ABA does not accept responsibility for any material beyond the point of dispatch where control of the storage conditions and length of storage ceases. Any concern regarding the budwood must be notified within 14 days of budwood dispatch so it is advisable to undertake a check of material as soon as the delivery arrives.
