Hawkes Bay: Psa Recovery region
Following the identification of a number of additional Psa-V positive orchards and a grower meeting to discuss regional classification, the Hawkes Bay region will soon move from a Containment region to a Recovery region under the National Pest Management Plan (NPMP).
The KVH Board approved the change at their June meeting and it will come into effect from 1 July.
All New Zealand kiwifruit-growing regions are classified as Exclusion, Containment or Recovery, based on the level of Psa-V infection. A Recovery region is a region already widespread with the disease.
More information on regional classifications, including maps, is available on the KVH website.
