Disease strikes New Zealand kiwi fruit

The New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) has confirmed that the bacterial disease, Pseudomonas syringae pv actinidiae, has been detected on kiwi fruit on over 20 properties. It is the first time that the disease has been confirmed as being present in New Zealand.

The MAF has ruled out artificial pollination as being responsible for the spread of disease.
