600 plantings made to support kiwifruit pollination

13th July 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

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.
