Technical workshops for potato pest and disease investments (PT22000)
What was it all about?
In 2022, this short project facilitated a collaborative identification of key pest (insect, disease and weed) challenges for the Australian potato industry and design of appropriate RD&E concepts to address these issues.
Over the course of the workshop, 30 potato industry members were involved including seed and processing potato producers and representatives from industry bodies and research organisations.
The key areas of discussion at the workshop were:
- The current pest issues facing the potato industry
- What a successful RD&E program looks like
- What is needed to get there.
The insights from this workshop will be used to inform future levy-funded investments in the potato industry.
