Horti grants open to provide Australian growers with netting infrastructure

A new round of grants to encourage growers to invest in crop netting is now open. It has been extended to include a wider range of horticulture industries across Western Australia. In all, $2.6 million has been allocated to WA from the latest round of the national Horticulture Netting Infrastructure Program to assist growers to purchase and install permanent infrastructure.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development is administering the scheme on behalf of the Federal Government. The matching grants, which were previously only available to apple and pear growers, are now available to all fruit and vegetable growers installing permanent netting structures in WA, excluding wine grapes.
