Field day: Mid North, 12 June 2024


NZ Avocado invites you to join us on Deon Cartwright’s orchard to discuss how we can prune trees and shelter to maximise packouts and improve orchard efficiency.  We’ll also revisit the ground cover planting discussed at the previous field day in September 2023 to see if it helped with weed control and any other pros and cons in the first summer. Wednesday, 12 June 2024 from 10.00am – 12.00pm at 427 Mangakahia Road, Whangarei.

When we last visited the orchard, Deon had recently started a trial where different ground cover species were planted to help suppress weeds, reduce mowing and provide additional benefits. Learnings from the first Summer will be shared.

Export packout is a key influence on orchard returns. Shelter and canopy management have a major influence on packout and will be discussed at the field day.

We hope to have a collective discussion on how growers are changing or modifying their orchard management to reduce costs and improve efficiencies on orchard.
