Vegetable industry leadership and development missions 2019 (VG18002)
What’s it all about?
This investment will provide opportunities for levy payers in the Australian vegetable industry to take part in overseas leadership and development missions. Exposing participants to international industries and markets, these missions are about building awareness and knowledge of research, technologies and practices in the global horticulture industry, and building relationships and networks for the participants and the broader industry.
Two previous projects that supported attendance at overseas missions were:
- 2018 USA Industry Leadership and Development Mission (VG15702) supported nine vegetable industry members to visit innovative growing operations, research facilities, agribusinesses and the World Ag Expo in the United States.
- 2018 Women's and Young Grower Industry Leadership and Development Mission (VG15703) supported two missions that exposed growers to international industries and markets, providing opportunities for education and the chance to see innovation around the world.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Vegetable Fund
