Victoria/Fraser Valley – British Columbia’s hazelnut growers now can apply for the next intake of Hazelnut Renewal Program funding.

This program supports the B.C. hazelnut sector by allowing growers to replace trees and establish new orchards with disease-resistant varieties.

The Hazelnut Renewal Program looks to build on the success of last fall, when 15.4 hectares (38 acres) and 8,254 EFB resistant trees were planted. In addition, more than 10.1 hectares (25 acres) with 3,025 EFB susceptible trees were removed. The areas covered include Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley and Pender Island.

The program is accepting new applications until July 15, for fall planting. B.C. hazelnut growers can apply here:
