Australian Mangoes End of Projects Feedback

This survey seeks to get your feedback on the mango levy-funded programs ‘MG17004 National Mango Industry Communication Program’ and ‘MG17000 Building Best Management Practice Capacity for the Australian Mango Industry.’ Collective feedback will be used to provide end of project monitoring and evaluation and recommendations for future similar projects. All individual responses will be kept confidential, and we will seek permission if we wish to publish individual comments in the final report. This survey should only take five minutes. We value your feedback.
 
Regarding the Communication Program, the core program includes; weekly newsletter My Mango, monthly out of season newsletter The Slice, and quarterly magazine Mango Matters. As well as the industry website www.industry.mangoes.net.au and the industry Facebook page @australianmangoes (please note this is separate to the Hort Innovation run Facebook page @AussieMangoes).
 
Regarding the Best Practice Program, the key components include; two regionally based Industry Development Officers conducting dry matter testing, calibrating Felix NIR machines, collating and publishing weekly crop forecast/crop flow reports, and organising the pre-season roadshows and field days.
