The English Apple Man met Vikram Singh Thakur (a friend) and Rob Saunders from Hutchinsons of Wisbech to view an experimental tree management system trial named HELIOS.
After a relaxed lunch at The Haywain at Brambling we drove the few miles to Hoaden Court Farm where one of the two HELIOS trials are taking place. There we met Rob's colleague Ivan Velasco who is assisting in the HELIOS trials. The second trial site is in Herefordshire.
Maximising light interception is the key driver for any orchard management system.
