Rural Delivery - Series Seven, Episode Six

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2011

Rural Delivery covers the latest in issues affecting New Zealand’s primary industries, with weekly headlines showcasing the industries' movers and shakers. In this episode, Dr John Clayton introduces hornwort, an invasive aquatic plant species threatening our lakes and rivers, as well as NIWA's plans to eradicate it. In Motueka, Heath Wilkins talks about how his family-owned Birdhurst Orchards is diversifying, growing everything from Royal Gala to Pink Lady and Fuji apples. The episode concludes with an interview with Auckland A&P President Bruce Orr on how the A&P Show has changed over its century-long history.

Most of the people that early settled New Zealand and Auckland were from farming stock, or farming merchants, and the Auckland A&P came about by a group of like-minded people getting together.
