The Motueka research campus is physically the third largest of all the PFR sites, comprising 55 ha of research orchards and growing facilities and 36 staff. The campus was recently redeveloped in conjunction with Māori land owners Wakatū Incorporation to create new purpose-built research labs. Motueka is home to four commercial breeding programmes: Berry Fruit (Rubus, Vaccinium, and Ribes), Hops (Humulus lupulus), Pear (Asian x European Pyrus), and Kiwiberry (Actinida arguta). There are also teams focused on Entomology, Pathology, Plant Physiology and Molecular Biology that support the breeding programmes and undertake research. We will visit the research orchards and hear overviews of the main breeding programmes and underpinning science. Afternoon tea and coach transport are included.
