First certified kiwifruit plants available

31 July 2014

Certified kiwifruit plants under the ‘Core Standard’ of the Kiwifruit Plant Certification Scheme (KPCS) are now available for growers to order.

The first two nurseries selling KPCS certified plants are now listed on the KVH website. Two more nurseries also being audited under the Core Standard are awaiting testing results and are expected to be included on this list shortly.

A list of kiwifruit nurseries including those who are now part of the KPCS, is available on the KVH website here. Purchasing certified plants gives growers assurance they are investing in the best possible start for their new vines. Growers are reminded to order plants well in advance to ensure that nurseries can meet industry demands.
