Winner plans Euro agri-tour

SANDY Beach hydroponic vegetable growers Geoffrey and Robyn McCann have plans for a European trip after taking out the runner-up prize in the 2010 BCU Bill Ussher Agriculture Grant.

However far from a leisure holiday, the eggplant farmers will be heading over to visiting farms across Europe to study the latest technical innovations as well as investigating industry best practice.

The McCanns’ agriculture farm was established in 1995, although it has specialised in eggplants for only the past two years.
