The impact of Psa seared into the mind
29 April 2021

Psa was first identified in New Zealand just over 10 years ago, in November 2020, and what followed was one of the most tumultuous times in the history of the New Zealand kiwifruit industry.

In honour of this anniversary KVH has commissioned and just released a keepsake booklet which captures some of the stories from the early days of Psa.  While many growers would prefer to forget these harrowing days, capturing these stories and the lessons from our past experiences is important to improve our preparedness for future incursions and share these lessons with others. Read the tales from the April 2021 special book release of reflections from the kiwifruit industry’s biggest biosecurity response and recovery here.

If you’re a subscriber to the Kiwifruit Journal, you’ll also receive a printed copy in the latest edition (April/May) in the post now.

We are extremely grateful for the generous sponsorship and support from the many organisations that contributed to the production of the booklet, and those who have been willing to share their stories.
