Help spread the biosecurity word online
20 August 2020

You, your family, and friends can follow KVH on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube social media pages.

We use the pages to engage with more people across the wider kiwifruit industry and share biosecurity messages with the public. It’s important to us that everyone is involved in biosecurity and sees that they have a part to play in helping keep out unwanted pest and disease threats.

Being online also enables us to spread messages more efficiently and quickly when we need to let people know about new incursions, any effects they may or may not have on the kiwifruit industry, and what actions people may need to take. You can follow us on
Twitter ‘@KVHNZ’ or find us on Facebook and YouTube at ‘Kiwifruit Vine Health – KVH’.

We encourage you to join us online and look forward to seeing you there.

New Hawke's Bay Regional Coordinator
9 July 2020

KVH welcomes new Regional Coordinator Gaz Ingram, who will be working with Hawke’s Bay kiwifruit growers, offering  support to help manage and reduce further spread of Psa, and build awareness of other pest and disease risk in the region.

Gaz has been involved in the horticulture industry since 1996 (growing conventional and organic apples in the Hawke’s  Bay) and has been with Farmlands the last eight years, working with organic and biological/regenerative growers across multiple crop types and growing systems.

His strong connection to the horticulture industry is amplified by previous positions within industry groups
such as the Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association, Soil and Health and current Director position at BioGro NZ, the nation’s leading organic certification business.

Supporting growers is a key focus for both KVH and all Regional Coordinators, who are available whether
seeking technical advice, pastoral support, or general information about biosecurity preparedness. Gaz’s
contact details, and those for all Regional Coordinators are available
here.

KVH thanks Campbell Tacon for his efforts in the role over the last two years and wishes him well in his consultant and orchard management roles.
