    A fruit growers association in Motueka in the Nelson area says yesterday's hail storm may have wiped out so much fruit the labour crisis is somewhat averted

    A fruit growers association in Motueka in the Nelson area says yesterday's hail storm may have wiped out so much fruit the labour crisis is somewhat averted


    The association's president says some growers lost their entire crop in the storm.

    Richard Clarkson says it will cost "millions of dollars", and the district and entire country would feel the impact.

    He says it's a bitter pill to swallow after what's already been a challenging year for growers.
