New technologies on tree fruit storage to be discussed at East Malling event

The latest developments in tree fruit storage are being discussed at an event being held next week by the East Malling Research Association (EMRA) and Marden Fruit Show Society (MFSS).

The storage day is taking place next Thursday, March 18, at EMRA's conference centre in East Malling and is starting with MFSS's AGM.  

This is being followed by the tree fruit storage programme, which is including a discussion by Norman Collett's technical director Nigel Jenner on advances in storing stone fruit.

Natural Resources Institute's Dr Richard Colgan is also among the speakers and is talking about some of the new challenges facing scald control in Bramley's Seedling.
