The Helix Project
Helix is a farm-based research project investigating how new technologies and knowledge can be linked to enable agronomists to deliver the future of agronomic advice.
Bringing together all the most innovative techniques and technologies in agriculture into one central location, and testing them all at farm-scale, learn more about Helix here
Hutchinsons horticultural team continue to think ahead and outside the normal realms of agronomic advice, by initiating and investing in a ground breaking 10 year project in top fruit, called HELIOS (Hutchinsons Enhanced Light Interception Orchard System).
