Practical. Insightful. Valuable.
These are just some of the benefits from attending cherry industry field days.
The Australian cherry industry is a strong and proud member community with a willingness to share its successes, challenges and innovative techniques.
Field days are a great way to share experiences and find out how fellow members approach their cherry growing enterprise.
On-site visits to orchards provide a candid information-sharing forum with cherry growing counterparts to improve business operations and raise industry standards.
