Spot the unexpected

You may have seen our new posters and online ads reminding of the importance to spot unexpected signs of disease on vines, and making a report of anything that could be a concerning biosecurity risk.

We can expect recent environmental factors and weather to affect the health of kiwifruit vines, but if you spot unexpected and unusual symptoms of disease snap a photo and report it. It might be a biosecurity risk. Together we can stop potential spread and safeguard our orchards.

Look out for the posters and social media posts, and if you’d like your own printed posters (we have A4 and A3) please get in touch and we’ll send them out to you.

We’ve also got some great new magnets for you – we’ll have them with us at upcoming events and meetings to share.
