On 29 May Kiwifruit Vine Health launched the Kiwifruit Plant Certification Scheme (KPCS) with the release of the Core Standard (the first of two Standards under the scheme).
Nurseries can now join the KPCS and certify kiwifruit plants to the ‘Core’ Standard. (A second ‘High Health’ Standard will be available toward the end of 2014).
This means growers will soon be able to purchase certified kiwifruit plants from participating nurseries, giving them assurance they are investing in the best possible start for their plants. Click here to see a fact sheet for growers on the Scheme.
