Last chance to save your spot at the Kiwifruit Biosecurity Industry Day

29 October 2020

KVH and Zespri are hosting the annual Kiwifruit Biosecurity Industry Day next Wednesday 4 November 2020.

Open to growers and anyone in the industry interested in learning more about initiatives underway to better manage biosecurity risk to the New Zealand kiwifruit industry, the day will feature a series of presentations that highlight the latest happenings in biosecurity research and response preparedness.

Guest speakers include Directors from the Ministry for Primary Industries and research initiative Better Border Biosecurity.

Local and international kiwifruit specific research supported by KVH and Zespri will be shared, including presentations to help better understand how we could use Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) biocontrol agents in kiwifruit orchards, and what we know about Kiwifruit Vine Decline Syndrome.

KVH will share what happens with unusual symptom reports and the day will close with a demonstration of the popular Find A Pest app that uses innovative technologies and scientist’s expertise to help users identify and notify potential pests.

Come along to see and hear all the latest news – this event sold out last year so get in quick to save your spot.
