Keep an eye out for Vegetables Australia – Winter 2021.

This 84-page edition includes profiles and Q&As with various industry members, as well as R&D project updates.

On the front cover of Vegetables Australia – Winter 2021 is Robert Hinrichsen from Kalfresh.

Queensland-based Robert was the 2016 Syngenta Grower of the Year award winner, and we caught up with him to chat about the changes that have occurred in the past five years and his views on the current state of the Australian vegetable industry.

In this publication, AUSVEG’s Shakira Johnson provides an update on iMapPESTS, a five-year project that aims to provide a framework for a plant pest surveillance system that can rapidly monitor and report the presence of high-priority airborne pests and diseases.

Meanwhile, Dr Paul Cunningham from Agriculture Victoria Research provides an overview on a new national research project underway that aims to develop a biocontrol strategy for managing Queensland fruit fly populations in Australia.
