A good monitoring strategy is essential for early detection of Psa-V symptoms and helps growers to minimise the spread and impact of the disease.
Growers are strongly encouraged to monitor orchards regularly and report suspicious findings to their pack-house or directly to KVH to confirm the symptoms are typical of Psa-V. Any person who identifies potential symptoms on an orchard for the first time must make a report to KVH within 48 hours of identification.
As part of the National Psa-V Pest Management Plan (NPMP) growers in all regions are required to carry out regular monitoring on their orchards. Requirements are outlined below.
Exclusion regions - one round for all orchards between 15 September and 15 October (reporting to KVH due 31 October)
Containment regions - one round for all 'Not Detected' orchards between 15 September and 15 October (reporting to KVH due 31 October)
Recovery regions - one round for all 'Not Detected' orchards between 15 September and 15 October (reporting to KVH due 31 October)
Growers with Psa-V positive orchards are expected to carry out regular monitoring to identify and remove infection. However, reporting to KVH is not required.enter your monitoring results here
