AUSVEG Agrichemical Pest Management Needs & Priorities Project Coordinator Patrick Arratia is working with growers and stakeholders in the Australian vegetable industry to establish a prioritisation process for the industry’s agrichemical pest management needs.

The objective of his project is to coordinate vegetable industry agrichemical pest needs by identifying and prioritising potential gaps through the implementation of an effective prioritisation process for the vegetable industry. As part of the project, he is coordinating a workshop for pea and carrot growers in north-west Tasmania to meet and discuss their agrichemical needs.

Time/date: 2:00pm–4:00pm, Wednesday 14 February 2018
Location: Forthside Research Station, 124 Forthside Road, Forth TAS
