Trials to assess whether hives subjected to KeyStrepto™ spraying could be contaminated, if KVH’s best practice application protocols are followed, have found no detectable KeyStrepto™ residues in beehives or bee products.
Kiwifruit Vine Health Inc has received a Psa-V positive result on a kiwifruit orchard in Matata (located between Te Puke and Whakatane).
Following confirmation of a Psa-V on a kiwifruit orchard in Te Puna today, KVH has extended the Tauranga Priority Zone (PZ) to include the whole Tauranga region.
Following the recent establishment of new Priority Zones in Waihi, Katikati and Whakatane, the High Risk Areas have been extended to include parts of the Coromandel peninsula and the eastern Bay of Plenty areas of Opotiki and Te Kaha.
Psa-V, now spreading to Katikati and Waihi, is likely to cost global kiwifruit marketer Zespri International at least $100 million in overseas earnings next year.
