Responsible Vegetable Production

EnviroVeg is our industries own environmental management program.

The program was developed by the Vegetable Growers Association of Victoria, following claims that vegetable production was a major polluter of waterways.

Growers wanted to show their concern for the environment and improve their production systems to benefit of both the environment and the wider community.

EnviroVeg provides a practical and achievable way for vegetable growers to improve their environmental performance.

The Enviroveg manual describes common vegetable production practices and how to manage environmental risks.

A simple checklist takes growers through nine elements of environmental management on-farm.

A range of acceptable practices has been documented and growers receive a score recognizing their environmentally responsible practices. Each year, members aim to improve their score.

EnviroVeg ProgramEnviroVeg considers the management of nine key areas.

  • Soil and Nutrients

  • Property and business

  • Water and waterway

  • Chemical use

  • Waste

  • Energy use

  • Pest and disease

  • Biodiversity

  • Air quality

The EnviroVeg newsletter identifies subsidies, grants and other funding available to improve the environmental footprint of your farm.

EnviroVeg
was taken nationwide by AUSVEG in 2003 and remains industry-owned and cost free to all levy-paying vegetable growers.
