Untitled Document

The EPA has received an application from Horticulture New Zealand to release from containment the psyllid parasitoid Tamarixia triozae into New Zealand to assist with the biological control of the tomato potato psyllid (Bactericera cockerelli).  NGINZ is assessing the impact on the garden and nursery industry and is preparing a submission to the EPA.  If there are matters that industry members would like NGINZ to consider let John Liddle know please by 15 March, john@nginz.co.nz.
