What was it all about?

This investment supported the running of the Greenlife Industry Australia National Conference and Field Day held in Perth from March 3-5, 2020. The event provided an opportunity for nursery industry participants to come together to connect with and learn from each other as well as expert speakers.

In 2020, the conference theme was Healthy plants, Healthy people which tied into the UN proclaimed International Year of Plant Health and contributed to raising awareness ow how protecting plant health can support people through health and well-being, economic development, protecting the environment and food security.

The conference was attended by over 225 people from all sectors in the nursery industry including greenlife production, allied suppliers, retailers and landscapers. Over 35 speakers presented across a three-day program which featured two field tours and three industry networking events.

The conference program had a focus on communicating outcomes from levy-funded investments as well as championing plant health through pest and disease management from grower to consumer, implementing responsible production practices, and encouraging the adoption of R&D outcomes on-farm.
