High Performance Manuka Plantations trial site at Tutira

The High performance Manuka plantation trial site at Tutira recently screened on TV1’s Rural Delivery programme. The story is about how Manuka plantations are being used for erosion control as well as the production of medical grade honey. Hill country landowners are being encouraged to retire marginal hill country and use high performing mānuka cultivars in plantations for erosion control with the additional benefit of another revenue stream from the honey.
