Letter to the Editor - October 18: Netting compromise

TRISH Welsh (Letters, October 11), maybe you just drive past these farms but many of us living in rural areas have had our once-beautiful green view taken over by a sea of white.

I agree with Shirley Lloyd that a compromise could help this problem. We need the farming but we also need to keep our beautiful coastal appeal.

Black netting is not so obtrusive and although the growing and ripening process may be slightly affected this reality of visual pollution is considerably lessened.

I am speaking from experience as the blueberries on our farm are covered with black netting and they produce well.
