International life science company Bayer will continue its strategic partnership with AUSVEG for a tenth year, collaborating on agriculture industry issues and ensuring Australian vegetable growers have access to information and events to effectively manage their businesses.
AUSVEG CEO James Whiteside said the two companies share the common goal of helping growers’ businesses by putting innovation at their fingertips to boost productivity.
“Bayer is a valued supporter of the Australian vegetable industry and continues to be a leader in innovative seeds, traits, biologics, and chemistry with digital tools and information that help our growers get food from the farm to local and international consumers,”Whiteside said.
“This partnership helps AUSVEG deliver advocacy and events for the Australian vegetable industry, including our policy work representing the interests of Australian growers on vital issues like getting a dedicated agriculture visa.”
Bayer also celebrates ground-breaking research undertaken in the Australian vegetable industry through its sponsorship of the annual Researcher of the Year Award.
Bayer Horticulture marketing manager Peter Sullivan said that having constructive partnerships with grower organisations is a win-win for the company and the industry.
“Bayer is pleased to extend its leading strategic partnership with AUSVEG, as we see this collaboration as a key platform to engage with the broader vegetable industry to ensure we better understand industry’s needs and continue to encourage best practice use of our products and the delivery of better solutions for all farmers,” Sullivan said.
