The East Gippsland Vegetable Innovation Days were a great success despite the limitations posed by social distancing rules, according to Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester

Mr Chester met with Lindenow grower Andrew Bulmer and industry representatives who were showcasing new varieties of crops that were coming on the market.

“Our horticultural sector is worth more than $1 billion each year to the Gippsland economy and we have some of the most productive agricultural land in the world,” Mr Chester said.

“While it was disappointing the demonstration sites in Lindenow had to be closed to the public because of the coronavirus, it was good to see growers taking the opportunity to make appointments, meet with industry representatives and exchange ideas on how to improve the sector in the future.”
