NY97009 - Nursery Industry Technology Transfer Workshops

The aim of this project was to provide workshop/seminars for the nursery industry in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Speakers provided information on recent technology relevant to the nursery industry in Australia, USA and Europe. The workshops were organized one week prior to the Symposium on Biotechnology of Tropical and Subtropical species in Brisbane. This enables the organizers to invite Professor Debergh and Read, who were attending the Symposium, to be keynote speakers at the three nursery workshops. The workshops were all very successful and the organizers received much feedback.
