Vegenotes 83 has a focus on sowing success through transformational technologies. Led by Dr Jitka Kochanek from The University of Queensland, project VG15021 was undertaken to determine whether a new plant growth regulator (PGR) could benefit the Australian vegetable industry in overcoming plant stress.

Vegenotes 83 also details vegetable business benchmarking. Project VG17000 – facilitated by vegetablesWA Building Horticulture Business Capacity Program Manager Bryn Edwards in partnership with Planfarm – equipped growers with the tools to make data-driven business decisions by providing access to rigorous industry-level insights on the financial and production performance of the Western Australian vegetable industry.
