New positive orchard in Gisborne

Last week a new Psa-V positive result was reported on a Hort16A orchard in Gisborne – the first positive result since March. Red exudate was detected on vines following a recent pruning round.

Winter pruning is a good opportunity to monitor orchards for suspicious symptoms as every vine is visited.

Growers on not-detected orchards who suspect Psa-V or other unusual symptoms are required to report these to KVH on 0800 665 825 or email [email protected] so lab testing can be carried out (or in recovery regions Psa-V can be verified by suitably trained packhouse personnel.)
