Largest threat to NZ production.
Effects both Green and Gold. Green is more susceptible.
Vines under 5 years old are more at risk.
Contaminated vines have to be incinerated and all tools sterliized.
Effects many kiwi producing areas but reasons for severity are not well understood.
Prevention is costly and not 100% effective.
Possible that warmer temps over 77 degrees F are less conducive for PSA.

Look to increase supply to the US to take advantage of large high income market and weakening domestic production.
Either done through cheaper South American growers or through the US due to its limited & declining grower numbers.
Continue to develop new cultivars and techniques which can be protected by intellectual property rights.
Zespri Organic
Push development of Sweeter Fruits and Push a Blue Ocean Strategy.
Sweeter, high quality fruit that is difficult to replicate.
Redefine the market for kiwi fruit.
Invest resources in to researching PSA and other biological threats to kiwi production.
Focus on improving political relations with non Zespri NZ growers to reduce the threat of Zespri being disbanded.
Kiwi fruit is a small niche - US$3.4bn in sales representing 1% of global fruit market.
Producer countries are biggest consumers with Western Europe being the largest import market.
High population countries with growing affluence (USA, India & Indonesia) are small consumers.
Producers split by Hemisphere due to growing seasons.
Many global growers suffer from domestic price cutting competition, lack of organization and inefficiency.
Competition and low yields have resulted in declining kiwi fruit growing areas in some countries such as the US.
