Hawke's Bay growers are still desperate for more fruit pickers, despite the government's decision to allow in 2 thousand seasonal workers.

Hasting's mayor, Sandra Hazlehurst, and the regions growers have given a media conference this morning to say the extra workers will help, but are nowhere near enough.

RNZ's Napier reporter Tom Kitchen was at there, he speaks to Māni Dunlop.
