Smarte løsninger i epledyrking sikrer kvalitetsepler til forbruker

Kun hvert sjette eple som selges i norske butikker er dyrket i Norge. Det er et landbrukspolitisk mål om å øke norsk produksjon, og med egnede sorter vil det bli mulig å utvide produksjonen og dermed sørge for bedre norskdekning i det som tradisjonelt har vært norsk sesong, fra august til desembe...
