Mango industry communications program 2016-17 (MG15006)
What was it all about?
This project was responsible for maintaining and improving the flow of timely and relevant industry information to Australian mango growers and other stakeholders. By keeping the industry up-to-date on R&D and marketing initiatives, news and other critical information, its ultimate goal has been to facilitate the uptake of new best-practice approaches and technologies, and to support decision-making in mango businesses.
A number of regular communication channels were produced and maintained by this project, including but not limited to:
- The quarterly Mango Matters publication, distributed in hard copy and as an electronic resource, with issues available to download here
- E-newsletter My Mango, produced weekly in the pre-season period and during the mango season, with issues available here
- E-newsletter The Slice, produced monthly in the mango off-season, with issues available here
- The Australian Mango Industry Association website
- Regional industry workshops and webinars to present key information to growers, with details circulated in industry e-newsletters
- Grower resources including guides and videos.
- If you don’t already receive My Mango, The Slice and Mango Matters via email, sign up here (their production is continued under a subsequent Hort Innovation Mango Fund investment)
- You can still watch resources including the project’s detailed video on correct sprayer set-up and calibration (22 minutes) and sprayer application and use of surfactants (9 minutes) or, going further back, presentation videos from the 11th Australian Mango Conference are still available, providing information on a range of research projects relevant to the industry
