Fruit Fly Operating Agreement

She said there had been no discoveries in the last six months, and that the exploitation of fruit flies has now come to an end. For more general information on operational agreements, click here. “Since the very first detection of fruit flies in February 2019, it is a priority for all of us to work together in the best interests of producers and to do everything in our power to ensure cooperation between industry and Biosecurity New Zealand.” “The prospects of Breitenundt and our fruit and vegetable producers have really come together and hit the range of economic, lifestyle and culture that we all face if an undesirable parasite like the fruit fly were to establish itself here.” KiwiNet is a network of people from across the Kiwifruit industry to coordinate the use of industrial resources in a biosecurity response. KiwiNet participated in the following reactions: If established here, fruit flies could have serious consequences for New Zealand`s horticultural industry. The most likely way to get to New Zealand is in infested fresh fruits and vegetables. Be vigilant and be careful. It is often difficult to detect adult fruit flies on fruit trees; the best option is to look for larvae in the fruit. Report something worrying on 0800 800 80 99 66. The fly is a serious parasite that could damage a number of fruit crops in New Zealand.

Dr Duthie said the controlled area has been removed and there are no longer any restrictions on the backfilling of fruits, vegetables and green waste. The biosecurity wheelboxes that scored points in the neighbourhood are now being removed and road signs are being dismantled. Queensland Fruit Fly Response, Auckland 2015 The detection of a Queensland Fruit Fly (QFF) breeding population in Auckland in early 2015 has led to a major biosecurity response. This was the first major biosecurity response under the GIA, and the first time that kiwifruit industry resources were used in a response with KiwiNet. For example, during the 2015 fruit fly reaction in Auckland, Auckland, 2 GIA partners (Kiwifruit Vine Health and New Zealand Apples and Pears (formerly Pipfruit NZ)) were working with MPI, um: Various types of individual, male and fruit flies were detected in 2019 in several Auckland suburbs, resulting in biosecurity reactions, resources from the kiwifruit industry in several teams at the reaction centre and the provision of KiwiNet for support field activities such as: Survellaince and public consciousness. Stu adds that industry members have also played an important role in helping employees respond by contributing to a range of field activities, such as fruit collection and inspection, traps, home visits and public awareness events.
