VegeNotes - your levy at work

VegeNotes inform growers on a wide range of technical matters and projects funded by their National Vegetable R&D levy.

These topical fact sheets present technical information in an easy-to-read format and help researchers communicate their project outcomes to the vegetable industry.

VegeNotes is acknowledged as a good solution to improving communication of R&D outcomes to the vegetable industry.

VegeNotes continue to provide research summaries with contacts for further information and are now distributed with your VEGETABLES AUSTRALIA magazine.
