Your R&D Levy

Research and Development (R&D) is essential for our industry to be internationally competitive.

R&D funds help:

  • identify and create new and better products for consumers.

  • our industry increase its productivity.

  • make more efficient use of natural resources.

  • find new and more profitable markets.

The Vegetable Industry R&D Program is funded by the national vegetable levy, the Federal and State Governments and voluntary contributions.

Vegetable R&D

A levy is paid on vegetables produced in Australia and sold by the producer or used by the producer in the production of other goods.

An Export charge is paid on vegetables produced in and exported from Australia.

Note: Levy and export are not payable on: Asparagus, garlic,hard onions, herbs (other than fresh culinary shallots and parsley), melons, mushrooms, potatoes (other than sweet potatoes), seed, sprouts or tomatoes as these crops have other R&D funding arrangements.

Any person or organisation can apply for funding to conduct an R&D project for the benefit of the industry. A national industry committee selects projects according to priorities set up by the industry.

For specific information on funding applications go to www.horticulture.com.au
