North West Auckland region
24 March 2016

This week KVH met with North West Auckland growers to discuss autumn Psa-V protection and to reinforce the importance of orchard biosecurity and hygiene through the harvest and winter period.

North West Auckland now has ‘containment’ regional status with three of their 23 KPINs confirmed Psa-V positive.

Infected material was removed from the two Psa-V positive Gold3 blocks through to early December. However, no new symptoms have been seen in recent weeks.

Hayward vines reported Psa-V positive during the November KVH monitoring round, have found no further symptoms since cut-out of the two original symptomatic vines.

Overall growers in the North-West Auckland region have done an excellent job with biosecurity and managing the positive orchards to reduce disease spread.
