AUSVEG’s strategic partnership with DuPont was announced in 2009. The partnership will enable greater collaboration on issues relating to the horticulture industry in Australia.
AUSVEG’s partnership with DuPont is significant to the industry. It marks the alignment of AUSVEG, the national peak industry body representing vegetable and potato growers, with DuPont, who are a major player in producing and marketing crop protection products to growers.
DuPont Crop Protection is part of the global Agriculture and Nutrition business of DuPont, serving Australian vegetable growers via a range of crop protection products and a steady pipeline of innovative new products planned for the next decade.
Research and development as well as marketing initiatives will form a key focus of the partnership, with DuPont also becoming involved in a number of industry events over the next 12 months.
In particular, DuPont has played a key role as a leading sponsor of the AUSVEG National Convention, Trade Show and National Awards for Excellence, for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
