Hand pruning demonstration for local growers

On Thursday 7 June, local prune growers were invited to attend a hand pruning session held at Paul Carver’s farm in Yenda.

Several growers stepped forward; demonstrating and explaining techniques used on their own enterprise.

Those who attended took the opportunity to ask questions regarding alternate techniques displayed, giving everyone some valuable knowledge as to why these practices are used by each demonstrator.

Yenda Producers Fruit and Case Branch Manager, Laurie Testoni also attended with some pruning equipment he has available in store. Following an outline on the equipment, Laurie offered the growers the opportunity to test it out while in the paddock, those interested took full advantage and put the equipment to the test.

For all growers interested in added information regarding the pruning equipment, don’t hesitate to call into the Yenda Fruit and Case branch to discuss.
