The third annual vegetable industry financial and production benchmark report has been released by AUSVEG state member, vegetablesWA and its partner, Planfarm, revealing important data on the profitability and key financial performance of Western Australian growers.

The benchmarking initiative assesses the financial performance of the vegetable industry across WA, while also providing individual growers with a financial analysis of their business.

The project has led to striking increases in the profitability of some participating businesses, which span across the full length of WA — from Carnarvon, Geraldton, Gingin and metropolitan Perth right through to Myalup and Manjimup.

Bryn Edwards, Benchmarking Lead for vegetablesWA, and Paul Omodei, Director of Planfarm, present the 2018-19 Western Australia Vegetable Industry Benchmarks in this video.
