Onion international study tours – inbound and outbound (VN22000)
What is it all about?
This project provides opportunities for Australian onion growers and supply chain participants to increase their awareness and knowledge of research and innovation in the global horticulture industry by delivering international industry study tours to key onion-growing regions worldwide.
The two-year program will deliver two international study tours for up to 18 onion growers and industry supply chain members that align with industry needs.
The project will also bring two international researchers to Australia to visit key growing regions and attend industry events to help inject global knowledge related to technology and practices across the Australian industry without requiring every Australian grower to travel abroad.
This project will help ensure that the industry can build the capabilities of the Australian onion-growing community through increased networking, knowledge sharing and collaboration among levy-paying growers and supply chain members, which will improve the productivity, profitability and competitiveness of the industry.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Onion Fund
