Ongoing project

Vegetable business benchmarking (VG17000)

Key research provider: VegetablesWA

What’s it all about? 

Beginning in December 2017, this three-year project is engaging with Australian vegetable growers to identify production and financial benchmarks and to uncover the drivers of best practice performance – with the aim of enabling a culture of continuous improvement on farm. It will ultimately allow vegetable growers to compare their business performance to industry average benchmarks and facilitate more strategic and informed business decisions.

The project team have released their latest report Western Australia Vegetable Industry Benchmarks for the 2017-18 financial year. This is WA’s second annual report into the financial and production performance of the state’s vegetable grower and provides key insights for vegetable growers.
