BMSB research update
20 August 2020

KVH and Zespri (through the Biosecurity Innovation portfolio) have commissioned an extensive offshore research programme to help improve our understanding of the impacts caused by Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) in kiwifruit orchards. As part of this work programme we are also looking to help improve our understanding and optimise the use of biocontrol for managing BMSB in kiwifruit.

KVH has summarised the results from these trials in two separate updates focussed on impacts and biocontrol research, now available on the KVH website.
