What was it all about?

Regional grower organisations in Australia could gain from analysing Southern German and Northern Italian approaches to providing effective pest and disease monitoring and general extension services for their members.

A study tour visited growers in both European regions and found they were well serviced by several organisations providing pest and disease forecasting, production and marketing information.

An integrated approach with research, development, education and application in the field was the key to success.
