An independent review by the Sapere Research Group on how the industry responded to the 2010 arrival of Psa-V into New Zealand has been released today. The report, which states that the ‘New Zealand kiwifruit industry has quickly become the world leader in Psa-V management’, includes several recommendations for industry and Kiwifruit Vine Health (KVH) to consider going forward.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) and the kiwifruit industry have laid the foundations for a new era of biosecurity partnership with the first signing of the Government Industry Agreement (GIA) for Biosecurity Readiness and Response Deed.
Kiwifruit Vine Health (KVH) today formalised a biosecurity partnership with Government on behalf of the New Zealand kiwifruit industry by becoming the first signatory of the Government Industry Agreement (GIA) Deed.
The discovery of a single male Queensland Fruit Fly in Whangarei is extremely disappointing but does not impact on the 2014 kiwifruit harvest, says Barry O’Neil the Chief Executive of Kiwifruit Vine Health (KVH).
