Re: Request for pumpkin pollination in New Mexico
"pursuant to the terms of the contract negotiated between the Parties and agreed to by PPF and UDP, the contract is set to end on December 31, 2016 on its own accord. PPF and UDP currently have outstanding invoices for amounts owed to NAPI under this contract that have been sent to collections"..
Barry interesting post. It appears that the previous grower (from North Carolina) failed to pay the Navajo Nation under the terms and conditions of their lease arrangement. That lease arrangement has now expired. Just wondering if the previous grower contracted out pollination in the past; and more importantly if the pollinator ever got paid if they did? Its my understanding that NAP just leases land to outside growers, and subsequently has nothing to do with the crops themselves. I don't do much pollination anymore but I might be interested in talking with them.
