Preparations for our 2015 broccoli season have begun with planting of both broccoli and baby broccoli well underway. After initially starting at the end of January on the Darling Downs, planting has now moved to the Lockyer Valley where we will continue until the end of June.
Qualipac Farms General Manager Brad Qualischefski is very pleased with the progress so far.
“Everything has been going very smoothly and the recent rain has definitely been helpful.”
Harvesting will begin in the first week of April and will continue all the way through the mid October. We are aiming to harvest 120,000kgs of broccoli and 6000kgs of baby broccoli a week which will be sold to local, interstate and international markets.
