Jan runs the show. She is the public face of the TFGA. When she is not on TV, on the radio or in the papers, she works on the continuing evolution of agricultural policy with the interests of Tasmanian farmers in mind. She hassles and haggles with three tiers of government, attends countless (sometimes seemingly endless) meetings throughout the state and interstate, and oversees the office administration. Jan is committed to strong corporate governance. She has more degrees than you can poke a stick at, so be careful when engaging.
Fiona acts as the secretary of the TFGA board and executive assistant to CEO Jan Davis and president David Gatenby as well as to commodity councils and committees.

Growcom Chief Executive Officer Jan Davis said the quality of the summer season's produce was impressive despite the drought which continues to affect many growing areas. "Consumers wanting to add variety to their Christmas eating wish list can expect plenty of options when it comes to seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables this year," Ms Davis said."Consumer friendly Queensland hybrid pineapples which have been especially bred for their lower acidity, high sweetness and convenience can be easily identified by their missing crowns and are a great summer fruit."Melons and mini seedless watermelons are set to be big favourites this year because of the exceptional colour and flavour they add to the Christmas table."Summer fruits available this season include plentiful supplies of stone fruit such as apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums and cherries."Grapes from Queensland are also in the peak of their season and are high quality, in plentiful supply and are a colourful addition to salads."Bananas are also in good supply, as are tropical fruit such as mangoes, lychees and papaws."Ms Davis said this season's vegetables were also looking good. "Supplementing heavy breakfasts this summer with freshly squeezed vegetable juices can give your body the lift you need to keep active during the busy festive season, not to mention providing essential vitamins and minerals," Ms Davis said."Spruce up your salad with different varieties of lettuce, Asian Greens, snow peas, beans, and red onion, accompanied by fresh local supplies of asparagus, spinach, radish and brightly coloured varieties of witlof. And don't forget to add an avo!"Sweet corn will be in season to place on the BBQ, as will ample supplies of northern grown tomatoes, capsicum, zucchinis and a suite of other vegies."Many growers plan their harvesting in December to deliver top quality summer produce for the Christmas season," Ms Davis said. or more information: Growcom CEO Jan Davis on 07 3620 3844 .

Peak horticulture organisation Growcom said today consumers could expect to pay more for fresh produce following recent dramatic price hikes in fertiliser and fuel.However, whether this would benefit local horticulture growers growing the produce or middlemen further up the supply chain remained to be seen.Chief Executive Officer Jan Davis said that fertiliser and chemical prices alone comprised between 11 per cent and 14 per cent of total farm input costs. "Fertiliser prices have more than doubled in the past year - and the price of urea has increased more than 25% in the past month alone. Growers are concerned that limitedcompetition in the fertiliser supply industry is creating a situation in which prices can be manipulated."Growers have managed to keep their heads above water in the light of recent input cost rises through increased on-farm efficiencies. However, there is little further capacity in theindustry to absorb continual price increases of the magnitude we are seeing now," Ms Davis said."Consumers who have enjoyed relatively inexpensive locally grown fresh produce for yearsmay not like the suggestion, but farm businesses have to cover their overheads as much as any other business or fail."In the face of increasing world food insecurity, governments will have to weigh up the costs of local horticultural businesses failing in terms of the long term health of the population no longer able to prevent chronic disease through the consumption of locallyproduced fresh fruit and vegetables. The impact on domestic food security and the implications of greater reliance on imported food supplies must also be seriously considered."Ms Davis said the situation was likely to become worse with the introduction of a carbonemissions trading scheme proposed by the federal government to be in place by 2010."The debate about whether agriculture will be included in the scheme is currently raging. While the whole of agriculture is the second highest greenhouse gas emitter, largely because of livestock industries, horticulture's emissions are considered small, with the bulk being from nitrogen fertiliser use."Currently there is limited research data to show us the optimum rate of fertiliser toproduce a particular crop of fruit or vegetables. What information there is based largely on farm economics rather than science."Nor is there any information about how fertiliser emissions can be measured or bettermanaged on farm."Some commentators have put the impact on input prices that the emissions tradingscheme will bring as higher than the GST."Meanwhile, developing nations are unlikely to bear any carbon constraints, further reducingAustralia's competitiveness on the world market."Horticulture growers are regarded as low impact carbon emitters, and even if horticulture is excluded from of the planned emissions trading scheme (and therefore not required to purchase pollution permits) growers will still have to bear the increased input costs from large emitters higher up in the supply chain (fuel, fertilisers, electricity etc). However the future is viewed, significant input cost increases seem likely. "Growers have no more capacity to bear any further cost increases," Ms Davis concluded."Governments in years to come will bear the consequences when Australians wonder whathappened to the food bowl that used to exist in their own country."Growcom's submission to the ACCC inquiry into fertiliser prices and an options paper onhorticulture and emissions trading is available at further comment: Growcom Chief Executive Officer Jan Davis on 07 3620 3844 .
