It is that time of year again where days are hot and muggy and we are all waiting to see when the monsoon will arrive.

As happens so often this time of year, some staff are leaving us for colder climates. From Katherine Research Station Callen Thompson, Senior Extension Agronomist and his family are moving back to their hometown, Karle Bourne, Technician is trying his luck in Central Australia and Kae Wegman from Plant Industries Development is also leaving the department. These staff have worked with many growers during their time with the department and we wish them all the best.

Our survey on the newsletters, and how you would like your information is still open. Your participation in this short survey ensures that we continue to deliver information and updates to you when you want them and how you want them.

Here’s to safe and happy holidays to you all from everyone here in the department.
