Background:

This workshop is being run to address the issues that growers in central NSW and the Hunter Valley specifically have endured over the past few years:

  • Drought and fires
  • Rain and flooding
  • Lace Bug
  • New Olive growers – there have been many olive groves which have changed hands and the new growers need industry information and support to produce olives profitably and to process the olives into high quality EVOO and/or Table Olives.

Presenters and exhibitors will be coming from NSW, Victoria and Queensland.
