NY09012 - Nursery Industry Regional Communications

The nursery industry is extremely diverse by both regional location and the types of plants grown. Compounding this the businesses also diversify by the stage of production they undertake and the end use markets. in order to provide an update of key issues relevant to growers in the regions the industry has developed state based communications. In some cases there are printed and others they are weekly email communications.

The industry has reviewed the industry needs for communications as part of the industry strategic plan 2010-2015 and a plan has been developed which highlights the channels for effective communication to industry stakeholders. This needs to be fully costed in accordance with the proposals submitted for consideration in 2011.
