The next layer in a desert farm venture could see the Red Centre supply Arab and Asian countries with onions.

Forming relationships and tapping into niche markets are two of the take-home messages from a horticulture forum focusing on growing exports to Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates.

Tasmanian cherries are being sold on China's largest online shopping platform, TMall.

Hundreds of kilograms of cherries are entering Vietnam each day on passenger flights from Australia and avoiding quarantine despite a ban on Australian fruit.

The term “being run off your feet” is apt when it comes to farming.
For two Queensland farms, lifting feet traffic has been part of a challenge to improve staff wellbeing with a healthy dose of competition thrown in.

Robotics developers say small lightweight weed controllers and fruit harvesters will revolutionise farming and create more jobs.

The average Australian’s fruit-and-veg intake falls well below nutritional recommendations, a new Roy Morgan Research poll has found.

A whopping 46 per cent of participants admitted to eating just one piece of fruit or less per day.
Coles and Woolworths spent much of 2014 defending their behaviour in court. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) brought several actions against one or both of them throughout the year for breaching undertakings, misleading consumers and bullying suppliers.

Both concerned allegedly unreasonable demands by Coles for payments from its smallest suppliers.

Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA) wants to reassure fruit and vegetable growers that their levies will be reinvested back into their sector.
