NY02023 - Development of SA Nursery Industry
This project has successfully promoted the benefits of industry best management practices as published in the NIASA guidelines. NIASA has been promoted through presentations to nurseries, government officers, gardening groups and students. The industry has been kept informed via nursery visits, trade day displays, seminars etc about best practices with the result being a broader and more comprehensive awareness and understanding of NIASA and its benefits with the industry. This project has facilitated the increase in membership to NIASA in SA from 6 to 10 businesses, with a number of additional businesses working steadily towards accreditation.
