Certification

Riversun provides high health kiwifruit plants that comply with the KVH industry standard for kiwifruit propagation (Kiwifruit Plant Certification Scheme).

This is a world class independently audited risk management standard that demands rigorous hygiene practices, record keeping and traceability, movement controls, staff training and crop protection as well as routine testing and visual assessment for Psa-V.

Vines produced under this standard gives you the highest possible level of assurance around trueness to type, plant health, and Psa-V status - to deliver the best plants possible to your orchard.

Gisborne is currently a 'recovery region' for Psa–V. Riversun Nursery currently meets the requirements to sell plants certified under the Kiwifruit Plant Certification Scheme (KPCS) “Restricted Certification’ which means plants can only be moved to Psa-V positive orchards, within our region or other 'recovery regions' in the North Island only. We are unable to ship to 'exclusion or containment regions'.
