Research and Development                          

The Australian vegetable industry needs a coordinated and responsive research and development (R&D) program that meets the needs of growers in supporting a competitive and sustainable industry. These projects are funded through Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA)by the National Vegetable Levy with matched funds from the Australian Government.

AUSVEG’s role is to communicate R&D findings to growers through:
  • Effective distribution and communication of scientific research
  • Providing industry and economic analysis, including economic commentary
  • Releasing vegetable industry consumer and market research

AUSVEG encourages vegetable and potato growers to become a member of Horticulture Innovation Australia Limited to ensure you have the ability to vote on the future direction of R&D investments in Australian horticulture.
