A North­land ki­wifruit or­chard has had to dump about $240,000 worth of pro­duce fol­low­ing what police suspect was a de­lib­er­ate poi­son­ing. Two or­chard sites in Kerik­eri were sprayed with Ca­lypso spray in March, or April 2015, police said. As a re­sult, about 30,000 trays of Kiwi Gold ki­wifruit had to be thrown out. Police went pub­lic on the case on Fri­day and said they were par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in a sight­ing of two peo­ple dressed in white over­alls and wear­ing back­pack spray units.
