Agrizest Case Study 1: Kiwifruit

Comparison Of Fruit Quality From Agrizest Treated Orchards (In Which Copper Is Applied Judiciously) With The District’s Average.

These three G3 orchards are managed using copper judiciously at the conventional rate, timed to protect leaf scar and pruning damaged tissues from infection by Psa, and by focusing on orchard hygiene and plant health.

The orchards were not treated with copper, streptomycin or Acibenzolar S-Methyl between bud burst and harvest, yet they outperformed orchards that follow the industry standard of multiple applications of copper to protect against Psa.

All 3 orchards have used the full Agrizest programme as per the label for a number of years.

Table 1 and 2. Fruit quality comparison of 3 Agrizest treated Actinidia chinensis cv. Gold3 orchards with Industry average for the district (as Katikati Nth), 2016 and 2017

All three orchards have consistently produced high quality fruit and have production figures that place them in the upper quartile of performance in this district.
