Vegetable Research Roadshow 2024 - register now

Vegetables NZ – with support from Vegetable Research & Innovation (VR&I) – is hosting several grower workshops across the country to highlight the research that is taking place in the vegetable industry.

This is a chance for growers to hear about recent research results as well as provide feedback to help direct future research work.

Each workshop will be tailored to the region in which it is taking place. They will cover the Sustainable Vegetable Systems (SVS) project, the Nitrogen Decision Support Tool that’s under development, A Lighter Touch (ALT) projects, integrated pest management and resistance management.
