This report presents the results of economic analyses of investments within the Processing and Fresh Potato R&D Program of Horticulture Australia. The principal purpose of the economic analyses was to contribute to a process being undertaken for the Council of Rural Research & Development Corporation Chairs (CRRDCC) that aims to demonstrate through examples the outcomes and benefits that have emerged or are likely to emerge from the 15 Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs). Valuation of these benefits, along with the identification of investment expenditure, is required in order to demonstrate their contribution to Australian rural industry as well as environmental and social benefits to Australia.
