Friday 5th May 2017
Every year Chislett Farms open their doors and invited the public in. They showcase and share their love of citrus farming and success with variety M7. Friday 5th May farm gates at Kenley were opened up to 30+ citrus growers and professionals from across Sunraysia and Murray valley growing regions.
Our horticulture team were fortunate to attend the day. Greg Chislet covered a range of topics including the planting process, rootstock compatibility, crop manipulation, and 2017 market potential & crop forecast. Growers were offered a taste test of two variety M7 and Navalina to showcase differences.
After the presentation orchard manager, took the group on a tour around the orchard, stopping off at multiple blocks including oranges, mandarins and lemons. After the orchard tour the SHC boys fired up BBQ and cooked lunch. The day concluded with an incite into breeding program and tour of nursery showcasing genetics that chislets have been so successful in producing.
