Protective Canopies Limited in conjunction with its supply partners have developed a cost effective canopy structure to keep kiwifruit protected from wind and rain.
Research in New Zealand, Italy and Korea indicates this will significantly limit PSA entering the leaves or wounds and infecting the plants (New Zealand Kiwifruit Journal Nov/Dec 2012). Article Here
On going research is being conducted by Zespri and Plant and Food regarding the ability of an infected crop to recover from PSA symptoms and return to full production.
Protective Canopies Limited will provide kit sets of all materials to construct canopies on your orchard along with recommending preferred contractors for the construction.
Kit sets will be specific to your orchard. Orchard mapping for both layout and contour are critical to supply material dimensions suitable for you orchard.
