Read about our new extension initiative
Horticulture is growing rapidly as an industry in Australia, with a 40 per cent rise in value over the five years to 2017/18 to $13.2 billion. And that growth is expected to continue, with the sector’s farm gate production having the potential to increase to between $20 and $30 billion by 2030. To support this growth, it’s vital that the nation’s horticulture Research and Development Corporation is constantly refining business practices to service levy payers and the industries they work in. In line with that approach, Hort Innovation has launched a new Extension initiative to ensure communication and extension activities truly support business decisions and enhance practices on farm.
