Data collection for the 2022 Nursery Industry Statistics Project survey is underway. Growers are urged to participate in the survey to help us understand the true value of the nursery industry and measure trends over time.
The levy-funded ‘Nursery Industry Statistics 2020-21 to 2024-25’ (NY21000) project is a five-year data collection project that will capture the value and volume of greenlife production in Australia and provide growers with an interactive business benchmarking tool for each year of the project.
Delivered by Greenlife Industry Australia (GIA), together with Down to Earth Research (DTER) and ACIL Allen, this project follows two earlier successful projects: the Nursery Industry Statistics 2017-21 (NY17008) project and NY16004, which is funded by Hort Innovation using the nursery research and development levy and funds from the Australian Government.
What’s in it for growers?
The data collected will help guide investment decisions at the grower level and strengthens the industry’s advocacy efforts at the state and national levels.
In addition, the data will assist in the development of the Nursery Business and Data Benchmarking Tool.
This tool provides growers with accurate, reliable, and user-friendly industry data to develop more effective strategic plans, allocate resources more efficiently, and track performance over time. Check out data from last year in this Facts at a Glance document.
Nick Jacometti, Director of Boomaroo Nurseries, said, “The greenlife industry is incredibly diverse, so it is wonderful to have a dynamic tool to collate national greenlife statistics together. It allows us to track industry performance over time, monitor market trends, and prioritize investments within our production facilities.”
