Under the National Psa-V Pest Management Plan (NPMP) KVH Movement Controls have been established for all risk items (including plant material, rootstock, pollen and budwood) to reduce the spread of Psa-V and other pests and disesases. Movement controls differ across different regions and risk items depending on the nature and level of risk they pose.
National Psa-V Pest Management Plan
In 2013 KVH developed a National Psa-V Pest Management Plan (NPMP) to ensure the entire industry worked together to overcome the impacts of Psa-V into the future. The NPMP was approved by the Minister for Primary Industries, Nathan Guy, on Tuesday 14 May 2013 and commenced on Friday 17 May 2013.
A copy of the NPMP, a summary of this and detailed information about the NPMP are available below.
In July 2016, KVH completed an internal, non-statutory review of the National Psa-V Pest Management Plan (NPMP). Click on the link below for the final document
A Grower levy has been established to fund the NPMP. The maximum rates for the levy equate to a charge of one cent per tray for Green kiwifruit; and two cents per tray for Gold and Red kiwifruit.
