vegetable industries development program

The Tasmanian Farmers & Graziers Association is pleased to be involved in the delivery of Project VG13115: Field Extension Officer for Tasmania. This project has been funded by Horticulture Innovation Australia Ltd with co-investment from the TFGA and funds from the Australian Government. 

The state-wide extension project aims to encourage the development of a sustainable, robust and vibrant vegetable industry in Tasmania. By delivering this project, the TFGA endeavours to act as an accessible gateway for Tasmanian growers to access a vast network of professionals across the broad range of expertise required to foster innovation, profitability and sustainability in the industry.

Overall, the project will identify, prioritise, promote, facilitate and leverage R, D & E activities in the vegetable industry that will assist Tasmanian growers to manage change and adopt best on-farm and business practices.
