Coronavirus-enforced travel restrictions have curtailed one-to-one meetings between programme farmers and adviser Senan White, while also preventing discussion group meet-ups. Dialogue between farmers and Senan is taking place by phone and group interaction is now taking place online.

The first online group meeting took place last week and included a presentation from Eurion Thomas from the company Techion. Many readers will not be familiar with Techion, but they are likely to be aware of the company’s old name, FECPAK.
