Harvest season presents a high-risk period for spreading Psa or other biosecurity risks between blocks, orchards and regions because of the numbers of vehicles, machinery and people movements involved. Everyone in contact with orchards at this time of the year must be fully aware of best practice orchard hygiene. Read the KVH top tips for harvest hygiene for more information.
