 FGVL announces inaugural Fruit Growers Conference

 The inaugural Fruit Growers Victoria conference and field day will be held in Shepparton on 16 and 17 August 2018.

FGVL Chairman Gary Godwill said the event has been established to bring the industry together to share important information.

“For all of us to grow and be successful, cooperation and cohesion in the industry should be fostered.”


“This will be a great opportunity for growers, suppliers and researchers to get together to improve industry competitiveness, through better yields, quality and pest and disease management.”

Mr Godwill said the format of the event would be targeted at bringing the best people and information to growers.

“The first day will provide growers with the chance to hear from leading research and technology experts on the latest management and technology options.”

“The field day on the second day will allow growers to see first hand the latest innovations from some of our leading growers and processors during three site visits.”

“This is an important event for our industry and I encourage everyone to attend. I’m sure it will be the first of many to come.”
