Completed project

Prune industry communications and extension program (DP19000)

Key research provider: Ausprunes
Publication date: Monday, January 30, 2023

What was it all about?

From 2019 to 2022, this project delivered 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, the project faciliated the uptake of R&D by the industry and supported decision-making in prune businesses.

A number of regular communication channels were 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.
