The best management practice program for horticulture

Hort360 is a computer based, risk assessment tool, which is designed to give you a 360 degree view of your farm business operations. Hort360 assists you to identify potential risks, capitalise on business opportunities and highlight unnecessary farm expenses. It is a whole of farm business approach.

How does it work?

The program is entirely voluntary. Through a one-on-one facilitated process, you will be asked a series of questions relevant to your business. As you answers each question, the system tells you if you are ‘below’, ‘at’, or ‘above’ the industry standard for each practice. If any practice is below the industry standard, you will be advised on what necessary actions are required to reach the right level.

Why be involved?

By participating in Hort360 you will have the opportunity to access technical support, on-farm training, and professional networks. All this will enable you to increase efficiencies, reduce costs, improve productivity and product quality, and build wealth.

Why is it important?

Hort360 allows the industry to be guided by science to make decisions that work for farms and businesses. It also allows the horticulture industry to demonstrate our stewardship of the environment and willingness to protect the very land we farm on.

What will happen to the data?

Data collected will be collated to help measure progress towards the industry’s improved management practices. It will be used to help identify any research, development and extension, product development and training needs.
