Search is on for Australia’s best young fresh produce growers

Corteva Agriscience joins AUSVEG, calling for Corteva Young Grower of the Year Award nominations to find Australia’s next crop of outstanding young fresh produce growers.

People across the horticulture industry are encouraged to nominate young growers who deserve recognition.

The annual award celebrates producers aged 35 or less who champion the horticulture industry’s success and show a commitment to innovation in an effort to define the next generation of future leaders.

Nominations close on 16 April, and the winner will be announced from a shortlist of nominees at the AUSVEG National Awards for Excellence during the Hort Connections convention in Brisbane from 7-9 June.

Corteva Agriscience’s Marketing Manager for Horticulture & Insecticides, Mr Nick Koch, said Corteva is proud to support the award again in 2021.

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with AUSVEG and the horticulture sector through sponsorship of the Corteva Young Grower of the Year Award,” Mr Koch said.

“Every day, talented young women and men are hard at work across the country, identifying opportunities and finding the solutions to help shape the future of fresh produce production.

“We encourage everyone to take a few minutes out of their day to nominate the outstanding young growers they know deserve recognition. Growers can also nominate themselves,” said Mr Koch.
