Event Details

A partnership between Hawke’s Bay orchardists and the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council aims to reduce winter air pollution.

An online tool has been developed by HBRC to help orchardists know when the conditions are appropriate to light fires, after council was approached by the Hawke’s Bay Fruit Growers Association.

Air Quality scientist Kathleen Kozyniak says it can be difficult for orchardists to make on the day decisions around burning.
