NY98006 - SA Nursery Industry Development Officer

The South Australian Nursery Industry Development Officer projects was developed to continue and extend the implementation of the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme in South Australia, to further encourage the adoption of industry best practice by the South Australian nursery production sector, and to develop a formal program for industry training. The SA NIDO was employed part time by the South Australian research and development Institute with funds from the nursery and Garden Industry South Australia Inc, the national nursery industry pot levy and Horticulture Australia LTD. The SA NIDO has worked as part of the national nursery IDO network and in collaboration with the recently appointed SA Garden Centre Development officer. This project has spanned a period of considerable change for NGISA. The project was prematurely terminated due to funding and administrative constraints on NGISA following a period of Association restructure.
