The Vine magazine • August 2021

In this edition of the Vine, we take a look at the table grape industry’s response to seasonal workforce shortages, including state and federal government initiatives to reduce the impact on farm businesses, and the growers taking matters into their own hands to protect themselves for upcoming seasons.

We feature three amazing women in horticulture (the ATGA’s own Alison MacGregor and Karen Connolly, as well as Robyn Bumbak), examine some findings from Agriculture Victoria researchers about improving postharvest shelf life and quality of table grapes, get an update on the Hort Innovation-funded fruit fly project, and hear all about ATGA Board member Rocky Mammone.
