Front Cover:
NZTCA members view a custom-made brush unit used to clean feijoas and a sorter which uses weight to size and direct feijoas into four different off-ramps and collection crates.
This sorter was demonstrated during a field trip to Ray and Jean Hollis’s Kapiti Gold Organics feijoa orchard in Te Horo during the 2009 NZTCA Annual Conference.
