Soil wealth and integrated crop protection – phase 2 (VG16078)
What's it all about?
This investment continues to provide vegetable producers with the latest information in soil and pest related areas, in formats that are readily accessible and easy to use, through www.soilwealth.com.au, workshops, webinars and other resources.
It brings into one investment the industry’s well-respected Soil Wealth initiative – previously run under Soil condition management – extension and capacity building (VG13076) – and the industry’s Integrated Crop Protection initiative, previously facilitated by Extension of integrated crop protection information (VG13078).
The focus is on helping growers deal with future challenges posed by changes in the natural and business/market environment. Helping growers implement the efficient use of appropriate, trialled and tested new technologies as they become available, is also key.
In 2018, the fresh and processing potato industries also began contributing to this initiative, providing potato growers and industry participants access to Soil Wealth and Integrated Crop Protection Program events, resources and advice.
Visit www.soilwealth.com.au for all project resources, engagement opportunities and more.
Also look out for project updates and learnings to be shared via levy-funded communications channels such as the AUSVEG newsletter, social media, the Vegetables Australia magazine and through the VegNET network.
