To provide information on the production and financial status of pipfruit growers, as well as trends and issues within the industry. Description of Project Our consultants visit a panel of growers each year to collect their financial and production data, which, in conjunction with MAF, is collated into an industry model for the ‘Hawke’s Bay Pipfruit Orchard’. As well as reporting actual data, a forecast is made for the year ahead, and a commentary report published to identify trends and issues affecting the sector.
