Budwood movement
11 August 2016

Growers are advised to use the cleanest source of budwood and from their own orchard wherever possible. Zespri supplies some Gold3 budwood, however, where growers are asked to source their own, it must meet the movement control requirements outlined in the KVH Protocol: Budwood.

These controls apply to all those involved in the budwood/grafting process including growers, grafters and post-harvest operators. Anyone supplying budwood must be registered with KVH and complete a Psa-V Risk Management Plan.
If you are unsure of any of the requirements relating to budwood supply or movement, please contact KVH on 0800 665 825 or email
