Monitoring

A good monitoring strategy is essential for early detection of Psa-V symptoms and helps growers to minimise the spread and impact of the disease. Growers are strongly encouraged to monitor orchards regularly and report suspicious findings to their Packhouse Psa Manager or directly to KVH to confirm the symptoms are typical of Psa-V. Any person who identifies potential symptoms of Psa-V on an orchard for the first time must report to KVH within 48 hours of identification.

Mandatory Monitoring 

As part of the National Psa-V Pest Management Plan (NPMP) growers in all regions are required to carry out regular monitoring on their orchards.

Mandatory monitoring and reporting requirements for 2016 are outlined below.

  • Exclusion regions—one round for all orchards between 15 September and 15 October (reporting to KVH due 31 October)
  • Containment regions—one round for all 'Not Detected' orchards between 15 September and 15 October (reporting to KVH due 31 October)
  • Recovery regions—one round for all 'Not Detected' orchards between 15 September and 15 October (reporting to KVH due 31 October)

Note - Growers with Psa-V positive orchards are expected to carry out regular monitoring to identify and remove infection. However, reporting to KVH is not required.

There are additional monitoring requirements for orchards located in a 'Controlled Area'.
