Persimmon industry extension and communication program (PR16001)
What’s it all about?
Beginning in 2017, this investment is responsible for driving the awareness and adoption of R&D outcomes within the Australian persimmon industry. Its strong communication and extension initiatives are designed to keep growers and other industry stakeholders up-to-date with the latest research activity, marketing initiatives and other news and issues.
The outputs and responsibilities of the program include…
- Production of the bi-annual Persimmon Press e-newsletter (if you don’t already receive it, sign up by emailing a request to firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Management of the Persimmons Australia website, featuring a log-in area available to Australian persimmon levy payers that hosts industry resources including handbooks and guides developed through levy-funded projects, issues of Persimmon Press and more. Fill out the registration form on the website if you do not currently have a log-in.
- Facilitation of industry field days and conferences. Resources from previous events remain available on the industry website, and you will find announcements about upcoming events in industry channels as they become available.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Persimmon Fund
