Tomato harvest in full swing

Cedenco's tomato harvest got into full swing this week with some of the first crops picked from blocks at Ormond (pictured).

The company expects yields around average at this stage with the hot weather and a lack of moisture putting pressure on the plants.

There have been good brix levels in the tomatoes but they hope to see the colour improve as the season progresses. Tomatoes will be picked here through to the end of March, with around 22 thousand tonnes tipped to be harvested this season.
