Baygold Nursery has met the requirements to sell KPCS “within region” certified field grown plants to growers in the Te Puke region.

Norfolk Nursery has met the requirements to sell KPCS “within region” certified field grown plants to growers in the Gisborne region.

Eastbay Horticulture Ltd in Whakatane has met the requirements to sell KPCS “fully certified” plants to growers between regions in accordance with movement controls.

With these new additions to the scheme, a total of 19 nurseries throughout kiwifruit growing regions have met requirements to sell KPCS fully certified plants, and 18 nurseries have met the requirements to sell KPCS within region certified plants.
