Growers’ e-bulletin – Mini Banana Roadshow Series


21 October, 2020


New mini national roadshow series to hit the road this November

DAF is pleased to announce that the National Banana Roadshows Series is happening this November, delivered as part of Industry’s National Banana Development and Extension Project.

Although COVID-19 has put the brakes on normal activities in 2020, the extension team is confident in delivering roadshows in a new format that will follow a COVID safe plan.

Rebranded as the mini roadshow series, the new shorter format will be delivered over 3 hours. Click here for more information on the program, dates, and venues.

Numbers will be limited due to COVID-19 restrictions and RSVP is essential. Afternoon tea is provided, and each event will have a COVID-19 safe plan. If you can’t attend in person, you can register your interest to join one of the roadshows online.
