Te Puke biosecurity workshop

11 November 2021

We’ve added a new biosecurity workshop to the itinerary – please join us at The Orchard Church in Te Puke, Thursday 2 December by RSVP here.

The workshop will run from 9.30am to midday, with refreshments, and is a great place to start addressing your on-orchard biosecurity programme so that you can develop a plan that suits your property and manages your biosecurity risk.

As mentioned earlier in the Bulletin, biosecurity experts from the kiwifruit industry will talk you through the benefits of having an on-orchard biosecurity plan and identify key practices to help you enhance biosecurity measures on the orchard as well as manage the threat of unwanted pests and diseases. Having such a plan is a Zespri GAP requirement. Attending the workshop will help with that achievement.

The workshops are open to all growers. Orchard management teams and people responsible for more than one orchard or property are encouraged to attend the workshop together.
