Kiwifruit Phytophthora survey
1 April 2021

As mentioned in the last Bulletin, KVH, Zespri and Plant & Food Research are currently working together on a survey of Phytophthora pathogens in kiwifruit orchards throughout New Zealand.

The autumn sampling round is in full swing but there is still opportunity for growers in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato areas to be included. We are particularly keen to include any sites in the Whakatane and Opotiki areas with suspected Phytophthora symptoms to ensure we get a good spread of sample sites.

Growers who have vines with known or suspected Phytophthora symptoms and who would like to be involved in this survey can read more about the project here.
