Thousands of Tonnes of Peaches to Rot on Ground
"A near-perfect growing season has produced a high-quality crop of canning peaches in the Goulburn Valley this year.But sadly for growers, the Australian dollar and cheaper imported products have forced the local cannery to cut its intake of fruit again.
That means thousands of tonnes of peaches are likely to rot on the ground.
Invergordon orchardist Doug Brown says it has been the growing season from heaven, but he is now going through the hellish task of knocking 50 tonnes of perfectly good fruit off his trees."
