The vegetable industry will gather in Melbourne’s CBD and Gippsland and Bacchus Marsh regions at the end of April for a six-day horticultural showcase featuring the Victorian Vegetable Innovation Days (VicVID23) and the 2023 10th International Spinach Conference and Field Day.
The spinach conference is a major drawcard and the first time this event has been held in the southern hemisphere. Delegates from around the world will be attending and the program will be led by renowned spinach specialists Dr Jim Correll from the University of Arkansas and Dr Lindsey du Toit from Washington State University.
Experts will present and discuss research on global spinach production, spinach breeding, disease and pest management and genomics. Following the conference, delegates have been invited to attend a field tour of the Bacchus Marsh baby leaf spinach region.
Agriculture Victoria Horticulture Program Manager Ms Aimee McCutcheon said the suite of events is an excellent opportunity for the industry to network, celebrate and be inspired by the latest innovation and research.
