Snapshot of industry released in handbook
HORT Innovation has released the Horticulture Statistics Handbook – offering the most comprehensive data available on all sectors of the Australian horticulture industry in one easy-to-read guide.
Featuring more than 470 pages of information drawn from a number of supply chain sources, including international trade statistics and industry peak bodies, the handbook includes data on more than 70 horticultural products including fruit, nuts, vegetables, nursery, turf and cut flowers.
Hort Innovation chief executive John Lloyd said areas of focus included profiling fresh market supply values and volumes by product, including import and export dynamics, while also identifying key production regions and seasonality.
“Now in its third edition, the Horticulture Statistics Handbook provides important data for industry, researchers and decision makers, supports policy formation and contributes to further research to benefit the industry,” Mr Lloyd said.
