Horticulture thriving in April 2003 | FLASHBACK


This week's Flashback gallery is from April 2003.


WELL before they were the hip food of cafes throughout the world, avocados were making front page news in 2003.

Well, for Good Fruit & Vegetables magazine, they were.

This year the publication celebrates 30 years of publishing and subsequently we're revisiting issues from the past to show the photos and faces of back then.

In 2003, the National Registration Authority was changed to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).


Dubbo hosted the Irrigation Association of Australia national conference and the Produce Marketing Association's International Advisory Council met in Sydney that year to discuss strategies to enhance the association's value to members outside the United States and to Identify new areas for future PMA programs.

It also took a look at vegetable production around Melbourne.
