Six hundred new native plantings have been established in the Bay of Plenty to support kiwifruit pollination and encourage bio-diversity, says Plant & Food Research.
The plantings on previously low-productivity land include a mix of plants that support insects known to pollinate kiwifruit.
Based on Plant & Food Research science, the project is funded by Operation Pollinator, a Syngenta global initiative to boost the number of pollinating insects on commercial farms.
