Harvest hygiene : multi-language biosecurity guides available online
7 April 2016

In 2012 KVH developed the Psa-V biosecurity pocket guide and translated it into several languages to promote harvest hygiene messages.

 
These tools are quick, step-by-step, visual reference guides for use by all growers, on-orchard harvest workers, auditors, transporters, postharvest and harvest contractors.
 
Movement of plant material during harvest is a concern for the kiwifruit industry in the Psa-V environment. Everyone in contact with orchards at this time of the year must be fully aware of best practice orchard hygiene.
