Tauranga regional boundary changes

05 June 2014

KVH recently reviewed the boundaries of existing Recovery regions within the Bay of Plenty.

After consultation with grower groups and the KVH Board, it was decided to combine Tauranga East and Tauranga West into one region: Tauranga.

Tauranga was originally one region when Psa-V was first establishing in the Bay of Plenty. As Psa-V progression differed across the Bay of Plenty, and progression control was better managed in smaller geographical areas, a decision was made in 2012 to split Tauranga into two regions.

However, now that more than 75 percent of orchards across these two regions are Psa-V positive it has been combined once again into one region.
