Publications

As the national peak industry body representing the interests of Australian vegetable and potato growers, AUSVEG produces a range of publications which are the industry’s key communications tools for providing information to the industry and to growers.

The industry’s two premier magazines are Vegetables Australia and Potatoes Australia, bothfull-colour, bi-monthly publications, which are mailed directly to Australian vegetable and potato growers, researchers, service providers, advertisers and other key members of the vegetable and potato industries.

These publications were initiated a number of years ago and remain key vehicles for the dissemination of information on Vegetable and Potato R&D programs and projects.

They also serve as an important resource in providing information on new initiatives, industry events, researchers, grower profiles and achievements, import and export markets, the economy and industry-related news

AUSVEG also produces a regular e-newsletter called the Weekly Update each week.  The Weekly Update is vital resource in providing growers with timely information on industry events, workshops and courses, agripolitical issues, chemical permits, R&D news and updates on AUSVEG communications and environmental projects and activities.
