Collection for the 2019 Nursery Industry Statistics survey is underway.
During the month of November, production nurseries are urged to make an appointment to participate in the voluntary survey, if called upon.
The independent research agency leading the survey, Down To Earth Research (DTER), are aiming to interview around 300 production nurseries nationwide.
The interviews collect key business data in order to produce a reliable and accurate snapshot of the size, value, production and employment in Australia’s thriving nursery industry.
By collating key business data, production nurseries will be able to make more informed business planning and resourcing decisions and monitor industry trends. The data collected will also be used to inform the development of the business-benchmarking tool.
At this stage survey progress has been steady, resulting in over half of the 300 required interviews being completed. During the final 3 weeks of the survey period, the DTER team will reach out to growers not already completing a survey.
