Venue: Tony and Angela’s Whispering Pines Orchard, 28 Hukatere Rd, Houhora

NZAGA invites members to join us at a autumn field day at Whispering Pines Orchard, 28 Hukatere Rd, Houhora.

The field day will provide an industry overview, revisit trees flower pruned in spring and  we will discuss the key orchard management practices for autumn including:

  • Tree health issue diagnosis and actions including phosphonate application for Phytophthora control.
  • Update on latest root stock trial performance.
  • Update of Avovantage project looking at influence of on-orchard management practices on fruit quality.
  • Fertiliser use.

Angela and Tony installed drainage in some areas of poor tree health several years ago with trees starting to show some signs of recovery.
