Growers and those with stored pollen available for sale are reminded the movement of pollen between orchards and regions must be managed to minimise the risk of Psa-V spread.
Key requirements for providing pollen:
- All kiwifruit pollen operators – defined as ‘every person or entity collecting, milling, selling, distributing and/or artificially applying pollen’ must register with KVH—Click here to do this.
- All pollen mill operators (including growers who mill for their own use) and anyone who has sourced pollen from a mill for further distribution must also register and follow requirements in the KVH Protocol: Artificial Pollination. The protocol describes movement controls for pollen.
- A Psa-V Risk Management Plan—Artificial Pollination must be completed as part of the protocol requirements. A template can be found on the KVH website here.
