Biosecurity buzz at roadshows
5 September 2019

KVH took part in the recent Zespri Grower Roadshows, meeting and speaking with growers about new developments and recent biosecurity activity we’ve been undertaking.

Chief Executive Stu Hutchings and Biosecurity Manager Matt Dyck presented at the roadshows on the ongoing Auckland fruit fly response (and the kiwifruit industry’s contribution in terms of cost-share and people), provided a short Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) update, and introduced the new kiwifruit growers on-orchard guidelines.

Heading into the high-risk season for BMSB and fruit flies they also shared with growers the new Kiwifruit’s Most Unwanted posters and flyers, which highlight why each pest on the list is such a big threat and the impacts they could each have.
