Ngai Tahu Farming is dabbling with horticulture in North Canterbury’s Amuri Basin.

The iwi-run livestock and forestry business has planted apples, blueberries and a smattering of stonefruit and nut trees on a 2.5ha trial orchard near Culverden.

Most of the orchard is in four apple varieties supplied by Turners and Growers.

If the test plot turns commercial Ngai Tahu Farming could become a fairly significant employer in the region, commercial development manager Ben Giesen said.

“All those things are big positives for us.”

The district has converted strongly to irrigated dairy farming on the basin flat in the past 20 years.

The shift from sheep and beef has brought jobs, wealth and new families but horticulture would a different jolt again.

A Plant and Food Research study of alternative land use found the area’s soils and temperature extremes suit most types of horticulture except viticulture.

Giesen said there is enough to do on the orchard already without grapes. Whatever the theory, there is nothing like putting the trees in the ground and giving them every chance to grow as they should, he said.

“We had a big block of land up here so what else do we do apart from dairy and beef farming.

“They came up with a few ideas and one of those ideas really just confirmed what we were already doing, which was to plant a trial block and see how we get on.”

Hot summers and frosty winters work for Central Otago so it is worth trying.

“Long, hot, fine days, low rainfall, soil types right. The only thing up here that’s not as good as other areas (like Central Otago) is the growing degree days. The data that we’ve got shows we’re at the lower end, which is going to mean the fruit isn’t going to grow to the size they do in other regions.”

A handful of farmers around Culverden had a couple of hectares of non-commercial orchard and were keen to see how Ngai Tahu went on a similar scale, Giesen said.

“When we got talking to a few of them they said some years it went really well and other years they got nothing. One of the catalysts for that seemed to be the frost.”

One of the hobby orchardists had several apple varieties, stonefruit and nuts.

“That mirrors what we are looking to do a little bit as well.”

The investment didn’t come cheap.

“With the trial block there’s obviously sunk costs there, you’re putting your irrigation in, the pumping systems and stuff like that. There are all kind of one-offs that you’d normally put in for a block that’s four or five times the size.”

Ngai Tahu Farming has applied to the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment for a grant to closely monitor the orchard’s performance.

After two years it will probably be clear whether commercial growing is a goer.

“We’re pretty confident they’re going to grow because they already are in the region. It’s how well do they grow and what do they yield.”

The orchard design replicates wood and steel trellis systems in Nelson and there will be the usual drip-feed irrigation and frost protection systems.

“It’s all been tailored to what we’ve seen out there and what we think is best practice.”

To protect against losses as a sound agricultural practice, growers often produce more cannabis than they hope to need.

  15. Do you need professional driving instruction? Have a busy schedule? Have no patience to teach? Private driving lessons are available for the following packages below. Additional training also available. When you apply for a driving license in Toronto, Canada, to drive a car or small vehicle, you need a G class license. When you pass the written test which include the rules of road and traffic signs, you get a G1 license. This is a beginner’s driver’s license. After a year of passing the G1 test, you get the G2 license. This wait time can be reduced to 8 months if you have a certificate from a professional driving school. You must carry the Driving School Instructor Certificate whenever you are teaching, and whenever you take a customer to a DMV Road Test Site. If a customer or DMV employee asks to see the certificate, you must be able to present it. When the white line separating traffic lanes is solid, it is not legal to cross such a line to change lanes. These solid white lines often precede an intersection with a marked crosswalk. Vehicular traffic is forbidden to change lanes for the protection and safety of the pedestrians wishing to cross the street in the crosswalk. While there is sometimes an aura of relaxation and leisure about the driving experience, traffic laws in the U.S. are rather strict and straying from these can cause serious trouble. In addition to arrest by police, the insurance structure means filing civil suits against others is very common. A small infraction or accident can prove disastrous. Rumble strips are raised pieces of material on or near edge lines or dividing lines. When you drive over them, they make a rumbling sound and your vehicle vibrates to warn you that you’re leaving your lane.

  23. There is no chance of that happening. Cheaters, or mechanics, can manipulate the cards to the extent that they can “stack” the deck or manipulate it in such a way as to create or preserve a desired sequence of cards. In Blackjack, everyone plays against the dealer. In the hand-dealt game, the players are dealt two cards face down. In the shoe-dealt version, players receive both cards face up. In both versions, the dealer receives his her first card face up and the second card face down. The object of the game is to get as close as possible to 21 without going over 21. If a hand goes over 21, it is called a “bust” or “break” and the wager is lost. In 21, Jacks, Queens, Kings and 10s count as 10. An Ace may be played as a one or an 11.
