We are delighted to be starting a project on cherries with our partners Norton Folgate Marketing, CE Murch, Storage Control Systems, TerraPrima Group and International Water Solutions. This project is funded through the Growing Kent and Medway Project (UKRI) and seeks to improve the quality and storage-life of Kent grown cherries through a combination of approaches including reflective mulches, respiratory monitoring to optimise harvest maturity for storage and novel technologies for decontamination in the field and the packhouse.
