This is the last walnut event for 2019.
Issues facing any grower leading into harvest include:
a. Employment of staff and your responsibilities
c. Knowing what is happening in your orchard.
We have presenters covering the practical aspects of these topics.
In addition, you will have an opportunity to ‘plot’ the future of the industry by having input into the 2019/20 and beyond activities.
visit another ‘member’ orchard and learn from the grower.
You can book by returning the attached registration form OR by registering on the website.
I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 30th November.
