Only a handful of orchards infected with the PSA virus have managed to sell their fruit.
A study by the Kiwifruit Vine Health Organisation has found only six out of 57 blocks have brought their crop to market.
It also found those who managed to survive the disease employed strict hygiene strategies to curb the spread of the disease.
All six of the growers say removing infected fruit post harvest saved their costs and brought peace of mind.
