A very interesting visit to Walpole Farm with Paul Walpole, discussing future uses for waste blackberries at the Innovation Hub

28 Feb 2017

Due to the Spotted wing Drosophila which has recently established itself across the UK as a pest problem for fruit farmers to deal with because the fly lays its eggs inside the developing fruit and not just in the rotting fruit. Management guidelines therefore requires that all residual fruit is picked to prevent/reduce the problem of infection and overwintering larvae. The result is a significant quantity of soft fruit waste which our BioBoost project at Innovation Hub has plans to recycle the waste.
