2018 Banana Roadshow

The six-stop National Banana Roadshow series is again coming to a location near you in July/August 2018.

Make sure you save the date for one of these important industry events.

These fast paced day-long events will showcase the latest banana research and development results on:

  • Panama disease Tropical Race 4 research;
  • Farm production and environmentalpractices; and
  • Aspects of supply chain management.

The roadshows will again feature the short, sharp 10 minute presentations from researchers, but this year may also include a ‘speed meeting’ session with the researchers and also interactive presentation displays.

These are your levies at work! Come along to see how the results from the latest research applies to your business.
