Reporting unusual symptoms
KVH has recently received several reports of unusual symptoms on kiwifruit orchards by proactive growers. These have been followed up with site visits and diagnostic testing to determine the cause. Fortunately these investigations have not found any new pathogens or biosecurity threats.
If a new pathogen were to enter New Zealand and affect our industry, swift action would give the best chance of minimising impacts to the industry.
All growers are encouraged to report any unusual symptoms to either KVH (0800 665 825) or their postharvest technical representative.
