VegNET helping vegetable growers convert from soil to low/medium tech protected cropping

 

The Protected Cropping industry in Australia is experiencing a five percent annual growth with significant interest from soil based growers looking to convert to low or medium tech protected cropping.

In response to the growing interest in this industry, Greater Sydney Local Land Services contracted Applied Horticultural Research to develop six short videos designed to support new and existing growers looking at changing from soil based systems. 

The videos can be watched as a series or individually.

They include technical content on

·         Layout and planning

 

·         Setting up a greenhouse

 

·         Irrigation management

 

·         Nutrient management

 

·         Sanitation and cleaning the greenhouse

 

·         Pest and disease management
