Core Tip: The Biosecurity Authority of Fiji has lifted the temporary suspension that was imposed on some vegetables exported to New Zealand from all Sigatoka Farms.
The Biosecurity Authority of Fiji has lifted the temporary suspension that was imposed on some vegetables exported to New Zealand from all Sigatoka Farms.

These vegetables include bhindi, long bean and tubua.

BAF Executive Chairman, Xavier Khan, says the temporary suspension was lifted after a field survey report on pests ‘Thrips palmi' was conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture Extension and Research team last month.

Khan says this revealed the low level of ‘Thrips palmi' host commodities on tubua and bhindi.

He added that they have taken necessary actions to ensure that interceptions of ‘Thrips palmi' at international borders are reduced.

Meanwhile the 'Thrips palmi' is a regulated pest in New Zealand and considered a high impact pest which, if established, could lead to high levels of economic consequences.
