Regional workshops to discuss new phase in Psa management
A reminder that from next week KVH and Zespri are coming out to many regions running informal workshops on the next phase of Psa management across the industry.
Just added to the schedule are workshops in Katikati, Tauranga, and Te Puke.
We’ve been at the forefront of biosecurity and pest management for many years. This proactiveness and future thinking continues with the introduction of the new Pathway Management Plan and phasing out of the Psa NPMP.
With the introduction of the new Plan, the time is right for the industry to move into a new phase of Psa protection and longer-term management (from 1 April), which is what the workshops will focus on.
Please join us to discuss how Psa will continue to be well managed to provide support at the orchard, regional, and national level to reduce spread and impacts of Psa and ensure best practice on-orchard.
We’ll specifically talk through KVH’s ongoing role retaining high-risk activities for Psa such as preventing further spread and preparedness for any new variants; post-harvest technical advice and support; Zespri co-ordination of support and resources for growers managing the impact of Psa on-orchard; research and tool development; and of course, how to identify and report unusual symptoms.
Please RSVP (for catering purposes) to save your spot so you don’t miss out - click here to RSVP for a workshop in your region.
We’re arranging further workshops, including in Nelson, which we’ll let you know more about as they are confirmed.
