Richard Mills has put together three meetings for growers during his visit next week.
The agenda is relaxed and intended to be a discussion among growers and reps, and includes:
- key points from the benchmarking report on pests and diseases
- any export queries that have not yet been answered
- discussion on labour for the coming season.
The dates and venues are:
3pm Tuesday, 22 September – 45 South packhouse, 3 Ord Road, Cromwell 9384
3pm Wednesday, 23 September – Ian Nicholls' shed, 251 Strode Road, Earnscleugh 9391
4pm Thursday, 24 September – Stephen Darlings' shed, 5133 Ettrick-Raes Junction Road, Ettrick 9572
Richard encourages growers and managers who are newer to the industry to come along and pick the brains of those with a little more experience.
