Improved Market Access for Foliage into New Zealand
Foliage of Cordyline (ti) and Dracaena (lauti) was identified by the SMAWG in November 2012 as a market access priority into New Zealand. This activity was to review the existing export requirements, identify any trials or surveys that may be required and, pending endorsement by the SMAWG, conduct the required trials or surveys and prepare a submission to NZ MPI. This interim report covers the desk-based analysis that was done to review the existing requirements and identify any trials or surveys that may be required.
