You're invited to the Kiwifruit Biosecurity Industry Day

KVH and Zespri are hosting the annual Kiwifruit Biosecurity Industry Day on Wednesday 4 November 2020.

Open to growers and anyone in the industry interested in learning more about initiatives underway to better manage biosecurity risk to the New Zealand kiwifruit industry, the day will feature a series of presentations including an overview of the proposed new Pathway Management Plan and a look at supporting research into pollen and compost, plus the role of KVH in the wider biosecurity system including GIA (the Government Industry Agreement for Biosecurity Readiness and Response) and the border.

Local and international research supported by KVH and Zespri into key risks for the New Zealand kiwifruit industry will be discussed.

KVH will share what happens with unusual symptom reports and the day will close with a demonstration of the popular Find A Pest app that uses innovative technologies and scientist’s expertise to help users identify and notify potential pests.

Come along to see and hear all the latest news – this event sold out last year so get in quick to save your spot. To those of you who wish to attend online, this is also an option and once you register a link will be sent to you prior to the event.

Where: Trustpower Arena, Baypark, 81 Truman Lane, Mount Maunganui
When: Wednesday 4 November 2020, 9.00am – 1.00pm including morning tea
