Trade Me bans sale of kiwifruit plant material

11 February 2016

The sale of kiwifruit plant material through Trade Me is a known risk of potential movement of diseased material, and one KVH has been monitoring for some time.

KVH has made Trade Me aware of these risks, and as a result they made the decision to place a complete ban on the sale of kiwifruit plant material; so the risk of moving diseased material through this channel is now eliminated. The ban includes the sale of kiwifruit plants, kiwifruit budwood, kiwifruit pollen and kiwifruit firewood.

Trade Me is implementing this action in the coming weeks.
