As you will be aware by now, TomatoesNZ’s commodity levy is due for renewal and the TNZ board proposed no changes to the current levy terms. Since March, we have been seeking feedback on this proposal through webinars, grower workshops and emails. As a result of this process, the board has confirmed the final proposal of ‘no change’ to the current levy terms. Please see the attached document for more details on this. You can also read about the work that TomatoesNZ has done, and will continue to do if the proposal is supported. If you support the work being done by TomatoesNZ on behalf of all fresh tomato growers, please take the time to vote

AGM and mini conference 

Please put 8th August in your calendars as the date that tomato growers are invited to participate in our Annual General Meeting. This will be accompanied by an array of presenters and discussions on the following topics:

  • Keeping nasties out of New Zealand: What the seed companies are doing 
  • Controlling common greenhouse pests (whitefly, psyllid, russet mite, aphids & caterpillars) with biologicals as part of an IPM 
  • Best practice hygiene for your greenhouse: the Dutch perspective 

The message from international speakers Marc Groenewegen and Frank Florus at earlier workshops was that border controls and hygiene practices were the key for New Zealand growers to keeping diseases like Tomato Brown Rugus Fruit Virus (ToBRFV) from having the devastating effect that has been seen in many other areas of the world. This is the theme for our educational conference. Please join us in person:

Date:  8th August 

Time: 12pm sharp to 5pm (including lunch) 

Venue: Navigation Homes Stadium, Pukekohe 

Please RSVP for catering purposes: https://forms.office.com/r/GR3nEd2buz

For those travelling from outside the Auckland region, please contact me about a travel subsidy. Dinah.cohen@tomatoesnz.co.nz
