Meet the team - introducing Linda Peacock
Linda has been with KVH since 2011 and has worked with growers and technical teams from all growing regions over the past six years, helping build knowledge around best practice management of Psa.
She is a member of the Psa steering group and also the Zespri crop protection steering group with input into research projects and facilitation and implementation of results from the KVH/ZESPRI research projects.
More recently, her role has had increased focus on biosecurity and now includes co-ordination of the KiwiNet representatives from across the post-harvest sector. Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) now supersedes spring as her least favourite thing! Meeting and sharing knowledge with a wide range of great people across the industry remains the best part of her job.
Linda has been involved in the kiwifruit industry for 30 years, in both growing and post-harvest roles, and prior to joining KVH was technical manager at Direct Management Services (DMS).
Gardening, kayaking, biking and the great outdoors are weekend favourites and travel has and will always be, in the blood. Latest recommendation, a 12-day biking and kayak trip around Samoa.
