New Hawke’s Bay KVH Regional Coordinator

Posted By Jo Pentreath | July 12, 2020

KVH would like to introduce Gaz Ingram in his new role as KVH Regional Coordinator for the Hawke’s Bay region.

Gaz joins the Hawke’s Bay KVH regional committee and will provide a valuable liaison between the regional group and KVH. He will be keeping growers well connected with updates about onshore and offshore pest and disease threats for the industry, and be a biosecurity champion for the local region. Gaz will also be a welcome pair of hands to assist KVH in following up enquiries relating to Psa and/or other unusual symptoms identified by growers in the region.

Gaz has been involved in the horticulture industry since 1996 (growing conventional and organic apples in the Hawke’s Bay) and many will already know him through his role at Farmlands as horticultural organic and biological manager. Over the last eight years Gaz has worked with organic and biological/regenerative growers across multiple crop types and growing systems. His strong connection to the horticulture industry includes previous positions within

industry groups such as the Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers Association, Soil and Health and current Director position at BioGro NZ, the nation’s leading organic certification business.

Supporting growers is a key focus for KVH and we encourage you to work with our Regional Coordinators who are available as part of the support network for those seeking technical advice, pastoral support, or general information about biosecurity preparedness. Contact Gaz via mobile on 027 511 8097 or email gareth.ingram@farmlands.co.nz.

KVH would also like to thank Campbell Tacon for his efforts in the role of Regional Coordinator over the past two years. Cam will continue to be an active member of the Hawke’s Bay group.
