Whangarei new positives
Last week KVH completed a monitoring round in the Whangarei region of 14 orchards around the current positive orchards.
A further three orchards were confirmed Psa positive through Hill Laboratories testing, bringing the total of positive orchards in the region to nine.
The region remains a Containment region – currently only 23.4% of the region’s hectares are on an orchard with Psa.
Growers are urged to remain vigilant, monitor their orchards regularly and maintain a regular protectant programme.
More information about growing regions and regional classifications is available on the KVH website.
