New website helps veg farmers improve sustainability

vegiesOn the Australian Food News website, 9 July 2012,

Australia’s national peak industry body for vegetable producers, Ausveg, has launched a new website that will help growers to monitor the environmental impact of their operations.

“Our new website will collect data from the self assessments and present detailed results showing how participating growers are performing at the national and State levels, or even by crop type and farm size,” said Mr Brooke-Barnett.

Individual growers will have the opportunity to compare their annual score against averages presented on the website. Mr Brooke-Barnett hoped this would encourage growers to put plans in place to improve their environmental performance.

Currently, 300 growers, who collectively farm 50,000 ha of vegetable growing land, are participating in the Enviroveg program.
