6:37 am on 6 June 2012

A new horticultural event which is based on the national agricultural expo at Mystery Creek has been launched in Hawke's Bay.

Two showcases - the Eastern Field Days and the ICE expo by Hawke's Bay fruitgrowers - are merging in the Eastern Horticultural Field Days event.

Hawke's Bay A&P Society general manager Brent Linn says Wednesday's event features the latest technologies for use on orchards and crops, entertainment and 50 exhibitors.

He hopes it will turn into a national event.
