he principle of the Under 40’s movement, to enable liked minded individuals to network within our very dynamic fruit industry, is what makes it work. Agrovista UK has made a long term commitment to the UK fruit industry, engaging and training young agronomists to work closely with our clients in the field. We were very proud Platinum Sponsors of the recent study tour to Chile, attended by our Fruit Technical Manager, Alex Radu. Alex has since returned with some great ideas to supplement our bio rational strategies, and has made some great new contacts. I would encourage all young people involved in the fruit industry to get involved, and I would encourage employers to help facilitate this involvement too.
