  • Compiling technical information from Australia and overseas into resources for growers, including presentations, ‘Seasonal Notes’ that are distributed quarterly, e-bulletins and more

  • Updating of the industry website with new information

  • Workshops for new entrants to the industry.

Information on upcoming events and Tech Group meetings are circulated in industry channels as details become available. You can also contact the Pistachio Growers’ Association at
