2020 Australian melon industry conference and field day (VM19002)
What’s it all about?
This investment was established to support the running of the Australian melon industry and field day for 2020, which was initially intended to be held in Perth in March, with a focus on using in-field displays of different melon varieties and agronomic practices to share knowledge with growers.
Due to the unfolding COVID-19 crisis, the in-person event was cancelled, with the plan shifting to the delivery of webinars in place of the conference’s presenter sessions, and videos from trial sites. In this way, the project will still be able to present the latest research, industry and marketing information to melon growers and other supply chain stakeholders. There will remain a focus on communicating the outcomes of levy-funded investments, as well as delivering technical and practical information to growers that they can implement in their businesses.
The recorded sessions will be placed on the Australian Melon Association industry website here and promoted via the industry’s communications and extension program.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Melon Fund
