Green garlic has subtle touch
A garlic grower in Mildura in north-west
Victoria is producing the first crop of
Australian green garlic. It is a style which
has been popular in Europe for years and not
dried -- which means it tastes and smells
less like garlic. Grower Nick Diamond said it
would change the way Australians use
garlic. "For people who don't like an over
powering garlic flavour, they can actually
use this product and it's a lot more subtle,"
Mr Diamond said. "It's not as garlicky in
flavour. It's something that's used a lot in
salads, because this is so mild in flavour it's
used in a lot of uncooked foods especially."

Mildura fruit fly find
THE discovery of a single, pregnant
Queensland fruit fly in Mildura has some
growers concerned about an outbreak in
South Australia. Trevor Ranford from the SA
Fresh Fruit Growers Association said the
movement of fruit from the Riverland would
not be affected. "The system that we have in
place particularly in the Riverland are, is very
strong and I'm sure they'll continue to be
vigilant on product coming across the
border," he said. "We can only encourage the
community to support the industry by not
bringing product across the border as they
might travel from Victoria to South
Australia." Geoff Raven from, Primary
Industries SA, said its staff would be extra
vigilant. "It's always a worry because there
was a number of outbreaks in Victoria a
couple of years ago and we kept a close eye
on that and it obviously puts additional
pressure because it only takes one slip-up
and someone to bring fruit and vegetables
across the state borders and not be detected
and that presents a risk to us," he said.

To some growers 'Natural'
means 'it doesn't work'.
Pyrethrum was one of the only
insecticides that did work before the
world wars. When the synthetics came
along they were cheaper but not better,
because you can't kill them any deader
than dead! Today, the price difference
is less an issue. Natural pyrethrum kills
any pest you hit. In minutes! You and
your workers cannot develop chronic
symptoms because whatever your
intake today, it will all be metabolised
by tomorrow. The level of safety
clothing and equipment required is
also less than most other insecticides.
You can re-enter the crop immediately
the droplets have settled... and the
withholding period is only one day.
The good old days are back!
And ants and earwigs
That's not the situation with natural pyrethrum.
