This project has revisited and confirmed the value of improved horticultural industry statistics. In the first stage of work on Horticultural Statistics, completed in November 01, the industry feedback summarised the current situation with horticultural industry statistics as ineffective in collecting data, not accurate enough inspire confident use, and not timely enough to be used in commerical decision-making. The second stage of this project has concluded that there are benefits to be captured by improving the current methods for collection and distribution of statistics. The improvements can be enabled using more efficient information technology tools, which will flow on to capture accurate data and allow more timely distribution.
