Hawke’s Bay Takes To Fieldays

Story without Video

Event Details

The talk on the opening day of the 50 National Agricultural Fieldays may for many have been issues of the moment such as the rain and mycoplasma bovis it was for a Hawke’s Bay contingent all about turning the region into a vocational destination to cope with an avalanche of horticultural jobs needing to be filled over the next few years.

The project is being led by the Horticultural Capability Group (HCG), in which the Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association has joined forces with national industry groups to get the message out to thousands of high school students and others expected to be among the foot-traffic of over 130,000 in the four days of the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest agricultural exposition, being held at Mystery Creek, in the heart of Waikato dairying and equine breeding country between Hamilton and Cambridge.

Also in the group are Hastings-based New Zealand Apples and Pears (formerly Pipfruit NZ), and Horticulture NZ, New Zealand Kiwifruit Growers Incorporated, Vegetables NZ, and New Zealand Avocado.
