VG04014 better brassica – workshop notes

The Brassica industry has made significant investment into researching pest and disease issues faced by the industry.

A few years have elapsed since some of these projects finished. Results of this research are highly sought after but have not always been easy to access particularly if the project has been completed.

The better brassicas project was designed to collate and deliver the most up to date information through a number of workshops in all the main production areas in Australia.

To supplement the workshops a series of publications such as fact sheets, posters and newsletter articles covering the management of clubroot, white blister and other brassica diseases.

Here you can download a copy of the notes presented at these workshops.

Eleven Better Brassica Project workshops were conducted over five weeks in spring 2005, attracting 193 growers in all the main production areas:

  • Cranbourne, Werribee and Bairnsdale in Victoria
  • Penrith and Bathurst in New South Wales
  • Gatton and Stanthorpe in Queensland
  • Perth and Manjimup in Western Australia
  • Devonport in Tasmania
  • Virginia in South Australia.

Most workshops ran for about three hours, and featured several researchers presenting their work, with time allowed to discuss other issues such as emerging diseases, water, biosecurity and government policy.

This project was facilitated by HAL in partnership with AUSVEG and was funded by the National Vegetable levy. The Australian Government provides matched funding for all HAL’s R&D activities.
