In May 2009, the EnviroVeg Program completed its current phase and funding was required to support the program through the subsequent six months which time a EnviroVeg Plan was further developed. Overall, the program has sought to encourage greater adoption of environmental planning and implementation in vegetable production, to increase the frequency of self assessment of current environmental performance, to reduce the potential for environmental damage caused by vegetable production, and to enhance positive environmental outcomes through the implementation of environmentally responsible farm management practices.
