Regional pest plan consultation
The submission period is currently open for the Proposed Regional Pest Management Plan for the Bay of Plenty region. The Plan sets out which pests will be managed by the Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BOPRC) and the approach taken for each.
KVH and NZKGI will be submitting on the proposed Plan and will likely comment on the management approach towards wild kiwifruit, pampas, moth plant and woolly nightshade. KVH works closely with BOPRC to co-manage pests such as wild kiwifruit, a very successful programme and a great example of industry and local government working together to protect the environment and reduce biosecurity risk to orchards.
Any person or organisation can submit on the proposed Plan – visit the BOPRC website for more information. Submissions close Tuesday 6 November 2018.
