Ongoing project

The EnviroVeg Program 2017-2022 (VG16063)

Key research provider: AUSVEG, with additional components with Freshcare and Growcom

What’s it all about?

The EnviroVeg Program is the vegetable industry’s environmental best management practice (BMP) program, and has existed in evolving forms since 2000. It involves a range of resources and services so that Australian vegetable growers can benchmark and improve their BMPs and showcase their environmental credentials through certification.

This latest iteration of the program is working to align components from EnviroVeg, Hort360 and Freshcare Environmental to deliver a clear pathway to environmental assurance for Australian vegetable growers, as it continues to support and improve environmental management on-farm and develop environmental recognition for industry participants.

It also includes the EnviroVeg Pilot Program, a funded pathway through EnviroVeg to reach Freshcare Environmental certification and attain the best practice benefits of environmentally responsible, sustainable vegetable production.
