As you will be aware, Fruit Growers Victoria has recently undergone some considerable structural and staffing changes which has led to a review of the organisation and provision of services. Cropwatch was one of the services that came under review. After much deliberation at the board level, it was determined that FGV could no longer afford the extra investment.
Fruit Growers Victoria realises there is a need for more people with monitoring skills in this industry and are channeling their efforts into training programs to build up the workforce expertise in this area.
The newly constructed Growfruit App, which is designed as a predictive pest decision making tool for growers, will be retained and further developed by FGV. We will still offer the use of the app to growers at a reduced fee.
Please feel free to contact Fruit Growers Victoria with any questions you may have.
