NZ Avocado Te Puke field day
13/03/2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
NZ Avocado invites you to join us at an orchard owned by Ngaupari Orchard Limited and managed by Aongatete Avocados Ltd (AAL) where we will start with a ‘back to basics’ session and followed by a field day.
When: Wednesday 13th March 2019
Time: 1.30pm “back to basics” followed by the main field day running from 2pm – 4pm
Address: Ngaupari Orchard Limited, Corner of Riddell and No 3 Rd, Te Puke
The ‘back to basics’ element is for anyone wanting to recap the basic information about the parts of the tree and growth habit. The main field day will include an industry update, as well as a discussion on tree health management and canopy management.
AAL staff will be on hand to share their practical knowledge of phosphonate application and management of the orchard. Results from a recent phosphonate decay trial carried out at the orchard will also be shared. Autumn pruning is likely on many growers minds, so a discussion on regrowth management and maintaining light into trees will be held.
