Grafting? Protect your investment
28 June 2018

A reminder to all growers considering grafting this winter to protect their orchard investments by following good biosecurity rules. These apply whether grafting one plant, one hectare or a whole new development block.

·         Select budwood from the cleanest source, or from within your own orchard.

·         Budwood can be moved between properties owned by the same legal entity within the same Psa region. Contact KVH for all other movements – permissions may be required.

·         KPINs supplying budwood off their orchard must register annually and complete a simple budwood risk management plan.  

·         Keep records of budwood source and where budwood is used. An orchard map is a good way of meeting GAP requirement.

·         All other distributors of budwood, such as packhouses and grafters should check their requirements with KVH. Email info@kvh.org.nz or phone 0800 665 825.
