If she had left the old rootstock in the ground and grafted on the new Gold 3 variety, as other growers did, she would probably have a thriving business today.

The Waihi resident was never compensated, as others were. But she has decided not to join in the class "Kiwifruit Claim" action about to play out in the Wellington High Court, because "in the end I just had to put it behind me and suck it up and move on".

Waihi居民從未像其他人一樣得到過(guò)賠償。但她決定不參加惠靈頓高等法院即將上演的“獼猴桃索賠”訴訟,因為“最終我不得不把它拋在腦后,接受它,繼續前進(jìn)”。

Arthur's experience left her bitter, following "vicious" emails from other growers who pressured her to remove her infected vines.

阿瑟的經(jīng)歷讓她很痛苦,因為其他種植者給她發(fā)送了“惡意”電子郵件,迫使她移除受感染的葡萄藤。

Fortunately she had a 600-cow dairy farm as well as the 5 hectare orchard in the Waihi Valley, which meant she was in a more secure financial situation than other growers. That might have contributed to the coercion applied to her, she feels.

幸運的是,她有一個(gè)600頭牛的奶牛場(chǎng),還有威希谷5公頃的果園,這意味著(zhù)她比其他種植者的財務(wù)狀況更安全。她認為,這可能是對她施加脅迫的原因。

Arthur said Kiwi Vine Health (KVH) - the industry body charged with dealing with Psa from December 2010 - had advised her to completely remove the vines. Of the 5 hectares, one had been planted in 1980, while the remaining four had only recently been established and were not yet producing.

Arthur說(shuō),從2010年12月起負責處理Psa的行業(yè)機構Kiwi Vine Health(KVH)已經(jīng)建議她完全移除葡萄藤。在這5公頃土地中,有一公頃是1980年種植的,其余4公頃是最近才建立起來(lái)的,尚未開(kāi)始生產(chǎn)。

KVH contests aspects of her claim. It says it told growers in 2011 it was up to them whether or not to completely remove the vines.

KVH對她的索賠提出質(zhì)疑。它說(shuō),2011年它告訴種植者,是否完全移除葡萄藤取決于他們。

"KVH's position was that although it supported any individual's own decision to completely remove vines from the orchard, it was not a requirement from KVH, and as such not compensated. KVH did however in 2011 pay for the cut out and disposal costs of this orchard which were considerable."

“KVH的立場(chǎng)是,盡管它支持任何個(gè)人自己決定完全移除果園中的葡萄藤,但這不是KVH的要求,因此沒(méi)有得到補償。然而,KVH在2011年支付了該果園的砍伐和處置成本,這相當可觀(guān)?!?/p>

Arthur said she offered to take out a hectare at her own cost but KVH did the job "for nothing", and considered this was by of compensation.

Arthur說(shuō)她愿意自費拿出一公頃土地,但KVH做了這項工作“白費”,并認為這是一種補償。

No-one had ever told her to leave the rootstock in the ground so that the new gold variety could be grafted on. "They wanted it gone", she said.

從來(lái)沒(méi)有人告訴她把根莖留在地里,這樣新的黃金品種就可以嫁接上去?!八麄兿胱屗?,”她說(shuō)。

KVH said Arthur then contacted them with her concerns in 2012, and they met with her and her packhouse Seeka several times to discuss the issues she raised and investigated the situation, including seeking extensive legal opinion.

KVH表示,2012年,亞瑟就她的擔憂(yōu)聯(lián)系了他們,他們與她和她的寵物狗Seeka多次會(huì )面,討論了她提出的問(wèn)題,并調查了情況,包括尋求廣泛的法律意見(jiàn)。

In the early stages of the outbreak, KVH had compensated a small group of Te Puke growers whose orchards had become infected. But once the KVH strategy changed from eradicating Psa to containing it, this early compensation package was deemed "no longer appropriate" and no longer available to growers from March 2011, KVH said in a recent statement.

在疫情爆發(fā)的早期階段,KVH已經(jīng)補償了一小群果園受到感染的特普克種植者。但KVH在最近的一份聲明中表示,一旦KVH的策略從根除Psa轉變?yōu)槎糁芇sa,這種早期補償方案被認為“不再合適”,從2011年3月起不再適用于種植者。

"I was very upset about the compensation handed out - it should have been either all or nobody. Those early people all got very well compensated and that was a real bone of contention. By the time my orchards were taken out the compensation money was well gone. They should have put the money into containing the thing," she said.

她說(shuō):“我對發(fā)放的賠償金感到非常不安-應該是全部賠償,也應該是無(wú)人賠償。那些早期的人都得到了很好的賠償,這是一個(gè)真正的爭論焦點(diǎn)。當我的果園被拿走時(shí),賠償金已經(jīng)花光了。他們應該把錢(qián)投入到控制這件事上?!?。

KVH said Arthur was aware of its stance over compensation prior to making any decisions regarding completely removing her vines, which were cut out in November 2011.

KVH表示,在決定完全移除2011年11月被砍伐的葡萄藤之前,Arthur已經(jīng)意識到自己在賠償問(wèn)題上的立場(chǎng)。

"We were offered the opportunity to have G3 at $8000 per ha (instead of the standard $12,000) but I couldn't do it because I had no rootstock and it was impossible to get any new," she said.

她說(shuō):“我們有機會(huì )以每公頃8000美元(而不是標準的12000美元)的價(jià)格獲得G3,但我做不到,因為我沒(méi)有根莖,也不可能獲得任何新的?!?。

Regarding the upcoming court case, Arthur is ambivalent. She said the claimants were chasing the wrong organisation, but still felt the Government had to share some of the responsibility for letting Psa in.

關(guān)于即將到來(lái)的法庭案件,阿瑟態(tài)度矛盾。她說(shuō),索賠人追錯了組織,但仍覺(jué)得政府必須分擔讓Psa進(jìn)來(lái)的部分責任。

She supported the claimants because "I can see where they are coming from".

她支持索賠人,因為“我知道他們來(lái)自哪里”。
