Research and Development

Welcome to the RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT section of our website.

Here we have listed many of the projects that have been funded by the Vegetable Industry R&D program.

We also provide extracts of relevant research and extension materials, produced by Australia's leading Vegetable Researchers including :

  • Vegetable Researchers Liz Minchinton
    - Disease management in bunching vegetables, brassica's, celery, parsnips and lettuce

  • Caroline Donald
    - Brassica's particularly control of clubroot

  • Oscar Villalta
    - Onion white rot, sclerotina disease of lettuce

  • Paul Horne
    - Integrated Pest Management IPM

  • Hoong Pung
    - Evaluation of practical ways to control disease in vegetables

  • PERACTO - Evaluation of a wide range of vegetable pest and disease controls and practices

  • Kevin Wilkinson
    - Poultry-Chicken-Fowl manures and Safe Composting

  • Robert Premier
    - Food Safety

Further work from these and other vegetable researchers will be added as it becomes available.

It is our hope that his archive will serve present and future vegetable growers and their agronomists, as they strive to produce fresh and healthy vegetables for us, each and every day.
