Conference wrap-up

In May almost 250 conference delegates including growers, suppliers, retailers, wholesalers, speakers and other industry representatives descended on Bowen for the 11th Australian Mango Conference.

This was the first time the biennial conference had been held in the region and it was a success in the eyes of the local community and indeed conference delegates.
If you missed the conference, some presentations and videos are now available at http://www.industry.mangoes.net.au/resource-collection/2017/6/5/presentations-from-the-11th-australian-mango-conference.

To access the traps that Jodie Chessman (Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries) referred to in her presentation—Fruit Spotting Bug—Monitoring and Management, please see your local reseller.

We were delighted to see so many people there and look forward to seeing you all at our next event (our pre-season workshops). Thank you to everyone involved that helped make the conference happen.
