“We are pleased to have the Hazel Trex test available to Zespri growers this season. Through Zespri Innovation trials, we have demonstrated that this technology can be used to optimize orchard practices to improve budbreak and flowering results,” said Dr. Mary Black, Innovation Team Leader for Orchard Productivity at Zespri International. “We believe growers can use this technology to optimize the timing of budbreak enhancers, therefore improving the performance of their orchards.”
