Grafting? Protect your investment
A reminder to all growers considering grafting this winter to protect their orchard investments by following good biosecurity rules. These apply whether grafting one plant, one hectare or a whole new development block.
· Select budwood from the cleanest source, or from within your own orchard.
· Budwood can be moved between properties owned by the same legal entity within the same Psa region. Contact KVH for all other movements – permissions may be required.
· Keep records of budwood source and where budwood is used. An orchard map is a good way of meeting GAP requirement.
· All other distributors of budwood, such as packhouses and grafters should check their requirements with KVH. Email [email protected] or phone 0800 665 825.
