Flower harvest for pollen
12 November 2015

There is still time for growers of green varieties with little or no male infection to consider making their orchard available for flower picking to support their own and industry stocks. Early male flowers can be collected for pollen without impacting on pollination.

Growers supplying flowers are asked to assess their orchards to avoid infected areas and monitor pickers to ensure infected flowers are not picked.

Several pollen mills have commenced milling this season; KVH will be auditing them over the coming weeks.
