Following last week’s Tasmanian Orchard Walk, the APAL November Future Orchards® program of events continues tomorrow with local walks and the National Orchard Talk online. 

This is the last round of Orchard Walks for 2021, arming industry with the tools and insights needed for harvest and beyond. 

Come together in your region and discuss seasonal topics, hear R&D updates and see technology opportunities for our industry in the year ahead.
