This study set out to map extension capability (information and advice) used by pear growers in the Goulburn Valley to support their decision making about the future of their pear orchards. Better understanding of the network can help growers, industry stakeholders and policy makers (DEDJTR), target limited resources more effectively to support growers and the pear value chain grow and be profitable.

Dr Barbara King, University of Melbourne, discusses the Seed Innovation Fund (for Horticulture Development) project - Mapping extension capability of the Goulburn Valley fresh pear sector.
