lost quicker than we think.
You know I am amazed by how "well" your comments in this thread went
over. Here we have an ex NAFEX President basically stating that NAFEX
does not have a "proper" focus and it just sort of glossed over.
If I understand you correctly, you are stating that you believe that the
thing that is really in danger of being lost is the knowledge necessary
to successfully grow fruit and not the germ plasm of the fruit itself.
As a remedy you are suggesting that NAFEX should concentrate its efforts
I just sort of reiterated this in the hope that your comments would
become more than a post in an archive in e-groups.
As always Ed, wishing you the very best of what life may bring,
