Federated Farmers national president Bruce Wills stands down
next month after three years in the role. He talks to
agribusiness reporter Sally Rae about his tenure and his
optimism for the agricultural industry's future.
Rain covers, dwarf root stock, driverless tractors, drones
and UFOs are the way forward for New Zealand's fruit growers
in the next 10 to 15 years, Michigan State University's
horticultural professor, Dr Greg Lang says.
New Zealand growers might have to consider hiring dedicated
freight aircraft to transport a possible 3000 tonnes of
cherries during the peak summer periods in the future,
Summerfruit New Zealand vice-chairman Tim Jones says.
