One of the industry’s strongest advocates, David Peasley, will retire at the end of 2018.
Mr Peasley spent almost 50 years working tirelessly for the banana industry, including on preventing imports, trialing new varieties and fighting Bunchy Top.
In 2015, the Australian Banana Growers’ Council (ABGC) presented him with the ‘Award of Honour – for outstanding service to the industry.’
The ABGC extends its deepest appreciation to Mr Peasley on behalf of the Board and growers.
