North-West Auckland now a Psa Recovery region
5 April 2018

Following the identification of additional Psa positive orchards and a grower meeting to discuss regional classification, North-West Auckland has moved from a Containment region to a Recovery region under the National Pest Management Plan (NPMP).

The change, which came into effect from 1 April 2018, was approved by the KVH Board at their March meeting.

All New Zealand kiwifruit-growing regions are classified as Exclusion, Containment or Recovery, based on the level of Psa infection.  A Recovery region is a region already widespread with the disease.

More information on regional classifications, including maps, is available on the KVH website.
