3 NovHawkes BayAlex MerrieAmerrie@hotmail.co.nzAlex has organised for a Mr Andrew Murdoch of Agrifert to come and talk soils with the group. Andrew is a bit of a soils guru from the Naki.
We intend to have a soil test of a producing Orchard for him to discuss.

So what's needed from you guys is:
1. Come along and have your ears bent
2. Bring along soil test results you have had done in the past (before, after, non producing, producing)
3. Bring foliage tests as well.
4. Bring a bucket of soil so we can look at its structure.
5. Bring along leaves from trees showing mineral deficiencies
6. Wine - you can never have to much wine

Please email to indicate that you are attending so I know how many sausages to get.
