Building Better Sustainable Horticulture Businesses (LP20001)
What’s it all about?
This investment is equipping horticulture growers in Western Australia to make data-driven business decisions by providing them access to rigorous industry-level insights on financial and production performance. This information will be acquired over three years of data collection which will inform annual industry benchmark reports.
The previously funded project Vegetable business benchmarking (VG17000) identified a gap in the maturity levels of strategic, financial and business management capabilities among vegetable business owners participating in the research.
This investment will deliver a similar service to VG17000 with a more deliberate focus on working closely with growers to develop their capability and will be expanded to all horticulture industries.
Participating growers will have the opportunity to discuss their results with an expert on business and financial management, including working through ways to practically implement positive changes to their business.
