Horticulture Innovation Australia (Hort Innovation) has identified a need to build capacity in people in the horticultural industry to ensure the development of leaders for the industry in the future. The two key objectives of this program are to:

  1. Increase graduate interest in careers across the Australian horticulture sector.
