For the last 3 years Steve Law has managed the Mangatawa Kiwifruit orchards and over the last 2 years has been instrumental in developing a further 9 hectares that will be G3 Gold producing. This will take our total orchard area up to 30 hectares, 20 Haywood & 10 G3 gold.
The 2017-2018 strategy for the kiwifruit orchards is to cut-over a further 3 hectares of Haywood in the top front orchard and start the next new stage of development of further 3 ha of G3 gold, unless Zespri release another better drop by 2018.
Steve has flagged that due to his own orchard commitment’s he will only be available for the next 2-3 years to help Mangatawa with new developments so Mangatawa will employ a new orchard manager to manage the balance of the Haywood orchards and Steve will concentrate on the new developments of the G3 gold.
