Reminder of orchard management requirements timeline

Growers are reminded that one of the requirements within the National Psa-V Pest Management Plan (NPMP) is to ensure that kiwifruit orchards meet required management standards.

Any orchards unpicked and unpruned are in breach of KVH requirements that they be picked by 1 July; pruned and tied down (female vines) by 1 October yearly; and a crop protection product, effective against Psa applied at least yearly.

If you are aware of any unmanaged or abandoned kiwifruit orchards, please contact KVH. If an orchardist or orchard manager thinks they are unable to meet all requirements, contact KVH so that we are aware of your situation and can discuss and agree a way forward.


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