Prune industry communications and extension program (DP19000)
What’s it all about?
Established in 2019, this project delivers communications to Australian prune growers and other industry stakeholders. By keeping the industry up to date on R&D, news, events and other critical information, its ultimate goal is to facilitate the uptake of R&D by the industry and support decision-making in prune businesses.
A number of regular communication channels continue to be produced and maintained by the investment, including but not limited to:
- Production of prune industry articles for The Vine magazine, which is the joint magazine for the dried fruit, dried prune and table grape industries (access online editions here)
- Delivery of Ausprunes e-newsletters to industry contacts (to sign up, contact Ausprunes here)
- Events including field days and an annual grower forum, with details circulated in Ausprunes channels as they become available.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Prune Fund
