Lockyer Valley Horticulture Research Project

Providing a greater understanding of the horticulture production industry.

Council with the support of the Federal Government's Building Our Future funding recently  undertook research into the local horticulture industry.

The report provides baseline statistics, providing greater understanding of this important local industry, and a guide for future planning and decision making.

The research and evaluation helps to identify production and export data, together with identifying future opportunities, trends and industry needs.

Lockyer Valley Mayor Tanya Milligan said "In the future, the funding will also allow us to explore further opportunities for potential innovation,"

Lockyer Valley Regional Council worked closely with industry and the Lockyer Valley Growers to achieve the outcomes.
