Banana Roadshow Series is back!

The National Banana Roadshow Series is back this November, with a mini, COVID-safe version set to stop in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia. 

The Roadshows are brought to you by DAF and delivered as part of the industry’s National Banana Development and Extension Project.  

Although COVID-19 has put the brakes on normal activities, the extension team is confident in delivering the ‘mini’ roadshows in a new, three-hour format.

Topics will include varieties and innovation trials.
