Nene looks to be heading for the earliest completed harvest since I have been here and undoubtedly the biggest crop. The search has been on over the past couple of weeks for boxes and storage so that people can get done and sheds are bulging.
October has been an extraordinarily big month, way ahead of last year and has been a result of bigger yields, increased ex field acreage and an improved demand.
We plan to continue with our trials programme next year. We will have two small trial plots along with some acre/hectare plots which we have selected from promising varieties at previous trials.
