The main objective of the project was to collect and disseminate representative data on the economic structure and financial performance of the Australian vegetable growing industry to assist industry stakeholders in developing plans for the long term direction of the industry. Six surveys have now been undertaken covering the years from 2005–06 to 2011–12 with funding from HAL. This unique dataset provides a comprehensive time series of production and financial performance data, production intentions and issues of concern to Australian vegetable growing farms. This dataset has been used for informing industry and government about a range of issues facing the vegetable industry.
