Movement of mature kiwifruit plants

The kiwifruit industry is undergoing rapid growth and some growers who have double or triple planted Gold3 vines to get quick canopy cover may consider removing some of these vines to increase footprint and optimise orchard performance. These plants may be used by growers of existing orchards wanting to plant on new licensed areas.

There is a high risk associated with the movement of plants as kiwifruit industry risk organisms can be rapidly spread between orchards by this means.

To minimise risk and ensure consistency between movement of these plants and Kiwifruit Plant Certification Scheme (KPCS) certified nursery plants, KVH has a protocol which needs to be followed. Please see the KVH website for details.


KVH investigates reports of unusual symptoms to identify and manage any biosecurity risks.
