AUSVEG has launched a three-year initiative which aims to enhance communication within Australia's potato industry and promote clearer information exchange.
The Potato Industry Extension Program, jointly managed by Ausveg and Horticulture Australia Limited, is specifically aimed at ensuring that growers and processors are made better aware of the outcomes of Research and Development (R&D) programs funded by industry and the Australian Government and are provided with information that can be used on a practical level.
"Growers and processors clearly do not have the time to read through lengthy research papers or decipher scientific processes," said Ausveg chief executive Richard Mulcahy, reports sj.farmonline.com.au.
"It is essential that they are supplied with lucid and intelligible information about R&D projects which can be put into practice in either the short-term or longer term. Through this program, Ausveg will facilitate multi-level and multi-directional information exchange between growers, processors and the research sector which will enhance understanding for mutual benefit."
