Event Details

The banana industry is once again assembling many of the leaders of major industry research projects to visit you and other growers. The events known as the National Banana Roadshow Series were well received by growers when they were held in 2014 and 2016. Over 98 per cent of participants said they would attend a similar event again.


The six-stop National Banana Roadshow Series is again touring the country during July and August 2018. The fast-paced events will feature the latest research and development including information on banana varieties, soil health, pest and disease management, QBAN, environmental practices, benchmarking and marketing.


The events will again feature several short sharp 10 minute presentations from researchers, a ‘speed meeting’ session with the presenters and interactive displays.


The tour kicks off in late July in New South Wales, followed by events held in Far North Queensland and finishes up in Western Australia. See below for further details on dates and locations.
