 Acknowledgements

 Assured Produce Ltd. gratefully acknowledge the contribution of all consultees in the preparation of this
 protocol, particularly Don Vaughan of the Farm Advisory Service Team.

 Preface

 This crop specific protocol has been written to complement the generic protocol, and avoids duplicating
 the generic principles of the scheme and appendices.

 It advisable to read the generic protocol first before reading this crop specific protocol.

 This protocol is designed to stimulate thought in the mind of the reader.

 This crop specific protocol contains crop specific parameters and guidance, where applicable, for the
 requirements stated in the Generic Protocol.

 All statements in this protocol containing the words "strongly recommended" (in bold type) will be
 verified during the Assured Produce assessment and their compliance will form a part of the
 certification/approval decision. The score required for these "strongly recommended" control points
 can be found on the final page of this document and in the checklists produced by Assured Produce
 licensed certification bodies.

 Disclaimer and trademark acknowledgement

 Although every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, Assured Produce Ltd. does not accept any
 responsibility for errors and omissions.

 Trade names are only used in this protocol where use of that specific product is essential. All such
 products are annotated ® and all trademark rights are hereby acknowledged.

 Notes:

 EU Review : Major withdrawal of pesticide products in 2003!
 Please read the accompanying Assured Produce „Newsflash‟. All pesticide information quoted in this
 Crop Specific protocol was last updated in January 2004. There was a major withdrawal of pesticide
 products in 2003 as a result of the EU Review of pesticides registered in or before 1993. Several active
 substances approved by PSD for minor uses were not supported by crop protection companies in rounds
 2 and 3 of the Review. Certain uses of 14 of these substances can continue until 2007 because they are
 covered by „Essential Use‟ derogations – but products containing other unsupported substances have
 been withdrawn and are shown on the PSD website.

 Growers should check with their advisers, manufacturers and the PSD website (www.pesticides.gov.uk)

 Any new standards have been prefixed in the text with (NEW)

 1          General introduction

                       Following a systematic approach will help growers to identify and manage the risks
                       involved in crop production. This protocol is based on a typical crop production process.
                       Using a flowchart approach, food safety, Health & Safety, environmental and quality
                       hazards are identified. Appropriate controls may then be established to minimise risk.
                       Food safety and Health & Safety issues always take precedence over quality and
                       environmental controls.

                       The flow chart is structured as shown below. Note that the sectional layout of both this
                       protocol and the crop specific protocols follow the same structure.



                                                                 SITE SELECTION

                                                             VARIETY SELECTION

                                                                      NUTRITION

                                                                     IRRIGATION

                                                                 PEST CONTROL

                                                              DISEASE CONTROL

                                                                 WEED CONTROL

                                                            HARVEST & STORAGE


                       The contents of each crop specific protocol are reviewed annually by informed farmers
                       and growers, food technologists, scientists, the relevant fresh produce association,
                       processors and agronomic consultants. Updated editions are issued prior to the cropping
                       season.

                       The review process considers both new developments and all relevant technology which
                       has emerged throughout the course of the previous year and which have been found to be
                       both workable by the grower and beneficial to the environment. As one aim of the
                       Scheme is to transfer such information and technologies to growers, attention is drawn to
                       those features of specific relevance to ICM by using italic script. In order that growers
                       may be confident that they are working to a current document, each protocol is dated and
                       numbered.

 2          Planning and records

                       Although suggested layouts have been provided in the Appendices for recording orchard
                       details and pesticide treatments, computerised record keeping systems are quite acceptable
                       provided that they capture equivalent information.

                       Pesticide applications

                       Appendix 1 details lists of the pesticides currently approved for use on Nectarines,
                       Peaches, Damsons, plums and Cherries, presented as a series of tables, each dealing with
                       the appropriate pesticides and their application for treating a particular fruit defect or
                       infestation.

                       Pesticide application records should be completed as the spray programme is applied to
                       the orchard. A copy of each record should be forwarded to the marketing organisation,
                       which is to handle the fruit as convenient (no later than the first harvest date of the fruit).
                       The original should be retained by the grower for reference and to fulfil the legal
                       requirements.

                       Where a common basic spray programme is used across a whole farm it is acceptable to
                       record the base programme which covers all orchards once only and to record special
                       treatments for individual orchards on an exceptional basis.

                       The pesticide application record should include the following:

                       Date:                         State the date of application.

                       Variety(s):                   State the varieties covered.

                       Product:                      State full trade name of pesticide as printed on the label.

                       Rate:                         At the top of the „Rate‟ column enter the units to be used (quantity of
                                                     pesticide per unit area), and in the rows the volume of spray applied
                                                     per unit area.

                       Volume:                       At the top of the „Volume‟ column enter the units to be used (volume
                                                     of spray per unit area), and in the rows the volume of spray applied
                                                     per unit area.

                       Operator Name:                State the operator's name to enable monitoring of exposure to
                                                     pesticides.

                       Target Pest:                  State target pest, disease or weed, e.g. plum fruit moth.

                       Justification:                State pest or disease level or risk as justification for treatment.

                       Weather:                      The wind speed should be measured at the top of the windbreak and
                                                     divided by two to give an estimate of the wind speed at crop level.

                       A suggested pesticide application record form layout is given in Appendix 6.

                       The wind force should be recorded according to the Beaufort Scale, i.e.:

                       0.         Calm. Smoke rises vertically.

                       1.         Direction of wind shown by smoke drift but not by wind vanes.

                       2.         Wind felt on face. Leaves rustle. Ordinary vane moved by wind.

                       3.         Leaves and twigs in constant motion. Wind extends light flags.

                       4.         Raises dust and loose paper. Small branches are moved.

                       5.         Small trees in leaf begin to sway. Crested wavelets form on inland waters.

                       Spraying should not take place if the wind force is greater than force four. Spraying at
                       force zero is not recommended either. Under DEFRA‟s Code of Practice foliar sprays
                       should only be applied at wind speeds up to force 2 and 3 and herbicides at force 2. Any
                       other relevant weather conditions should also be entered.

                       First permitted harvest date

                       To calculate the first permissible harvest date refer to the product label (or Appendix 1)
                       and add the appropriate number of days to the date on which it was applied. The first
                       permissible harvest date should be entered and brought forward as a 'rolling date' in the
                       spray records. Care should be taken when applying sprays in orchards with early season
                       varieties in order to comply with the minimum harvest interval.



 3          Site selection

                       See Generic Protocol.

                       It is strongly recommended that when selecting a new orchard site, aspect, frost
                       susceptibility, soil type, pH and soil drainage are considered.



 4          Site management

                       See Generic Protocol.

                       It is strongly recommended that all plantations be protected by windbreaks/hedges to
                       ensure that an adequate microclimate can be maintained whilst minimising spray drift.

 6          Nutrition

                       To obtain the optimum results from Stone Fruits and to avoid excessive application of
                       fertilizers regular analysis of soil and leaf samples should be carried out. Soil analysis
                       should be carried at least once every three years. Any fertiliser application should be
                       based on the results of these analyses and quantities applied only those necessary to
                       achieve optimum cropping levels. If advice is taken on crop nutrition, ensure your advisor
                       is FACTS-registered. When Stone Fruit has achieved optimum cropping levels full crop
                       loads can require at least 96 kg of N / ha. Avoid applying nitrogen between mid-Autumn
                       and early spring. However to avoid leaching, and to prevent sudden surges in vegetative
                       growth this should only be applied when the roots are active and can take up the nutrient.
                       Also the use of sequential applications during the growing season allows rates to be
                       adjusted according to crop load. Generally uptake is improved and leaching is reduced if
                       smaller doses are applied at intervals throughout the growing season.

                       Other macro nutrients should be applied annually if found to be required by soil analysis
                       results.

                       Where leaf and previous history indicate low levels of major or micro-nutrients, soil
                       applications may be supplemented with foliar sprays. Although it is not usual to store
                       Stone Fruit for long-term storage, even for short-term storage (1month plus) only fruit
                       with a reasonable sugar levels or with a good orchard history should be considered for
                       storage.

                       Do not apply fertiliser to conservation areas or wildlife corridors and retain all records of
                       analysis results and all fertiliser applications.

                       It is strongly recommended that soil type and crop load, in conjunction with soil and leaf
                       analysis, are considered before the application of fertiliser.

                       Growth regulators

                       The use of the growth regulant paclobutrazol (Cultar) is a useful aid to reduce vigour and
                       to increase cropping potential in Stone Fruit.

                       It must be stressed that label recommendations should be followed to avoid excessive
                       vigour reduction.

                       Over dosing can prevent any terminal growth occurring and this effect can have long
                       lasting affects.

                       must always be followed. The spray volume is one recommendation, which may in some
                       cases be altered to suit the needs of the equipment or of the user.

                       The conditions under which reduced volumes may be used are given in the Code of
                       Practice(1), Sections 144 to 147. The chart(2) is intended to help you to interpret the advice
                       given in the Code and to explain when reduced volume may be considered. The term
                       "reduced volume" is used here to mean any spray volume lower than the minimum
                       recommended on the label. The phrase "for that dose" used in the Code refers to the label
                       recommended dose.

                       CAUTION: Before making any spray application at reduced volume you must read the
                       Code of Practice and follow all the conditions in paragraph 89 which include:

                                            Make a written COSHH assessment.

                       8.10       Pest, disease and weed control

                       8.10.1 Pest control using predatory insects

                       8.10.1.1 Encouraging beneficial insects in the orchard

                       One of the most important factors in building up and maintaining beneficial insect
                       numbers is the correct choice of pesticide. Information is given in the appendices to assist
                       the grower to use a predator friendly spray programme.

                       When replanting an orchard or planting up a non-cropping area, give consideration to the
                       types of trees and shrubs chosen. Predators are an essential component for pest control to
                       reduce the reliance on pesticides and should be encouraged at every opportunity.
                       Providing alternative hosts and food sources, which will attract predators at different
                       times in the season to Stone Fruit orchards, is a valuable way of encouraging predators
                       within the farm. The inclusion of goat willow and hazel alongside the normal alder
                       species will provide food and havens for anthocorid beetles, lacewings and ladybirds.

                       Avoiding the use of herbicides in these areas will allow coarse grass species to flourish,
                       which will provided habits for predators such as ladybirds to hibernate in .

                       In the short term annual flowering plants, such as Phacelia spp, mustard and wild carrots,
                       can be sown around headlands or in fallow areas to encourage a wide range of pollinating
                       insects such as, typhlodromid mites, hoverflies, anthocorids and ladybirds. Crop yields in
                       Stone Fruit improve with adequate pollination, so by encouraging pollinating insects, crop
                       potential can be improved. If the Stone Fruit flowering period coincides with cold weather
                       conditions, honey bees may not be flying so the presence of natural pollinating insects
                       may be crucial to obtain a viable crop. Increasing biodiversity on the farm is an important
                       factor in building up reliable numbers of predators against a wide range of the pests that
                       will attack fruit crops.

                       8.10.1.2 Natural predators

                       The key natural predators, i.e. typhlodromid mites and anthocorids on Plums and
                       ladybirds on Cherries, must be conserved and encouraged.

                       Typhlodromus pyri




                       Commonly referred to as „typhs‟, the nymph and adult forms of this mite are very similar
                       in appearance being pear shaped, with pale, almost translucent smooth bodies, and are
                       about 0.3 mm long. Adults have 8 legs and are very active on the underside of the leaf and
                       are often found near the main vein. They prefer leaves with numerous leaf hairs and are
                       thus a more important predator on apples than on Stone Fruit but never the less, they can
                       occur on Stone Fruit and should therefore be encouraged.

                       Adult females over winter in the orchard hiding in the bark of trees and elsewhere. Many
                       die during the winter. In the spring, surviving adults lay eggs on the underside of leaves.
                       Up to four generations may occur in a season.

                       The adults and nymphs eat large numbers of red spider mites and will even eat rust mite if
                       the red spider mite numbers are low. As they are present all year round in orchards there is
                       no safe time to use insecticides that are not selective to them.

                       Typhs should be introduced into orchards where they are not endemic. The most effective
                       way of doing this is to use summer prunings from apple orchards that have known
                       populations of typhs. Research has shown that typhs prefer to move along the tree rows in
                       the orchard so the prunings should be placed in each row, up wind, to help dispersal.

 Anthocoris nemorum (Common flower bug)




                                                                                                                     Nymph
                                                   Adult



                       Commonly referred to as „anthocorids‟, the adult and nymph form of this predatory bug
                       are about 4 mm long. They are dark brown/black and shiny with geometric pale markings,
                       particularly on the adults. The nymphs may have a red colouration, with 6 legs, long
                       antennae and a long pointed mouthpiece.

                       The adults over winter in a wide range of sites both in and away from orchards. They
                       come out of hibernation from March onwards migrating to willow catkins and lay eggs
                       between March and June which hatch after about 10 days. There are usually two
                       generations. Both adults and nymphs enjoy a varied diet attacking aphid, spider mites, and
                       caterpillars.

                       In order to conserve endemic populations, avoid using products toxic to anthocorids from
                       2 weeks after petal fall to harvest.

                       (2)        Although tar oil is shown as being harmful to both typhs and anthocorids, as it is
                                  used as a dormant spray it‟s impact is much reduced due to very low populations
                                  present during the dormant period and at present it is the only approved material
                                  that controls hop damson aphid.

                       Coccinellidae (ladybirds)

                       Two of the most common species of ladybirds found in fruit plantations are the two spot
                       (Adalia bipunctata) and the ten spot ladybird (Adalia decempunctata).

                       Adults tend to be gregarious when hibernating but on emergence in the spring, mate and
                       then tend to become more solitary.

                       Eggs are laid in batches, upright on leaves. These eggs are creamy white and 1 mm in
                       length. The female can lay up to 300 eggs during her lifetime.

                       Development from egg to adult takes several weeks but adults are long lived, with egg
                       laying taking place over the season so all stages are common throughout the summer
                       period. Larvae feed voraciously on aphids and can consume several hundred during their
                       development. If aphid are in short supply, ladybird will eat spider mite, so as they are a
                       common predator, they have a useful impact on both aphid and spider numbers in
                       orchards.

                       As with other predators, the ill advised use of some of the more toxic sprays has a
                       devastating effect on all stages of development of ladybirds, so a careful sensible
                       approach, when considering spray applications, is necessary.

                       Also the provision of a sympathetic environment for hibernating, eg mixed hedgerows
                       and grasses ensure that early migration and colonisation of the orchard can occur the
                       following season.

                       8.10.2 Disease control

                       8.10.2.1 Blossom wilt (Plums & Cherries)

                       This condition is found on both Plum and Cherry and can be caused either by a fungi
                       Monilinia laxa (Brown rot) or a bacteria Pseudomonas syringae pv. morsprunorum .

                       Monilinia laxa can enter via the flower through either the stigma, anthers or petals and
                       can move through the floral tube to cause twig blight and cankers on the spurs.

                       The cankers that form can re-infect developing fruitlets which can be a major cause of
                       fruit loss.

                       Wet or frosty conditions during the blossom period can increase the spread of the disease
                       and thus create more spur cankers so it is essential that a fungicide be applied at white bud
                       and just prior to bloom to reduce potential infection.

                       Systhane (myclobutanil) & Indar (febuconazole) both have SOLAS for use on Cherries
                       and Plums & both have some effect on Monilinia (Brown rot)

                       Recent research suggests that Indar (febuconazole) is the more effective material.

                       These materials should be used sparingly to avoid resistance building up.

                       Brown rot is capable of infecting both green fruitlets and ripening fruit and can spread
                       from fruit to fruit by contact of the fruitlets.

                       This risk is reduced where fruitlet thinning is carried out (especially Plums) when fruitlets
                       are thinned to 10cm. apart to increase fruit size, which consequently reduces fruit contact
                       and thus subsequent fruit infection.

                       It is recommended that mummified fruits be removed from the tree after picking to reduce
                       the risk of re-infection the following season.

                       Blossom wilt is also caused by the bacteria P. syringae pv. morsprunorom during bloom
                       especially in wet conditions or where bloom has been damaged by early frost. Once
                       blooms are infected, infection can rapidly spread along the flowering unit.

                       An alternative is the application of Bordeaux mixture or copper oxychloride in Cherries or
                       copper oxychloride in Plums applied post harvest for bacterial canker control. This will
                       help to limit the spread of colonies of these bacteria, which consequently reduces numbers
                       present in the spring when infection of flower trusses occurs.

                       Myclobutanil, Systhane 20 EW has a SOLA for the control of blossom wilt on Cherries,
                       Plums (outdoor) and mirabelles.

                       Indar (Febuconazole) has a SOLA for Outdoor plum, cherry & mirabelle.

                       8.10.2.2 Plum rust

                       This disease is caused by the fungi Tranzschelia pruni spinosae or var (discolour) and in
                       extreme cases can cause premature defoliation.

                       Leaves are infected in early summer with the rate of infection increasing in wet and warm
                       conditions. Infected leaves gradually turn yellow with rust pustules visible on the lower
                       leaf surface. These leaves fall prematurely and if severe defoliation takes place may result
                       in weaker fruit bud developing for the following season.

                       The application of foliar feeds post harvest may help rectify the effect that premature
                       defoliation has on the tree, and increase fruit bud strength for the following season.
                       Myclobutanil (Systhane20EW) now has a S.O.L.A for the control of Plum rust which if
                       used should reduce levels of defoliation

                       Indar (Febuconazole) will also have an effect on Plum rust control.

                       8.10.3 Weed control

                       8.10.3.1 The use of mulches for weed control

                       Mulching can be a useful aid in Stone Fruit production to conserve moisture, improve soil
                       structure and reduce herbicide inputs. Straw mulches are preferred as they are

                       biodegradable and, as they are incorporated into the soil by worms, the soil is enriched
                       and aerated. The use of straw mulches makes it possible to reduce herbicide inputs by
                       achieving a significant suppression of annual weeds. Before applying the mulch it is
                       advisable to treat any perennial weeds as they will grow through the straw and become
                       more difficult to control.

                       The selection of weed free straw is essential to avoid weed problems in following seasons.
                       This „clean straw‟ is best applied as an even layer approximately 4 inches thick, after
                       blossom when the risk of frost has passed and when the soil has warmed up but while it
                       still has plenty of moisture reserves. As Stone Fruit flowers early in the season and is
                       therefore at greater risk to early frosts, especially radiation frosts, the application of a
                       straw mulch should be delayed until at least after flowering. This allows the soil to warm
                       up and prevents the risk of latent heat in the soil being prevented from warming the
                       immediate air layer during a frost by the straw mulch layer. The layer of straw will need
                       topping up every other year. A complete layer will suppress the summer germinating
                       weeds and if the mulch is maintained, good control of annual weeds can be expected
                       throughout the year.

                       As mentioned previously, the use of mulching can significantly reduce herbicide inputs,
                       reducing the risk of herbicides leaching out and is therefore good orchard practice.

 Notes:
 a)      Hop damson aphid will only be controlled successfully on Plum crops if dormant season sprays of tar oil are
         used.(the use of this material is to be revoked in 2004)
 b)      Spring insecticide sprays for leaf curling plum aphid must be applied before leaves start to curl if effective control is
         to be achieved.
 c)      Cypermethrin and Deltamethrin will be very damaging to predators of aphid, red spider and rust mite. Persistent use
         of these insecticides will encourage severe attacks of spider and rust mite and will aggravate the control of aphids so
         they should only be used when absolutely necessary. It has to be noted that at present these are the only approved
         products to control some Cherry pests.
     d)       It is therefore advised that the latest application for cypermethrin is white bud stage.
     e)       This material may have to be used at this growth stage to control Dasinora Midge which is becoming common
              on cherry in some areas
 Not all formulations of these products may be currently approved for use on Stone Fruit. Check before use. Label
 recommendations are revised regularly, read a current label before use.

                       9.4.1      Improving the short-term storage potential of Plums.

                       Analysis of sugar levels in Plums and Cherries before harvest will give a good indication
                       of the storage potential. It is strongly recommended that this should be used, together
                       with the disease and storage history of the orchard, to select the orchards from which fruit
                       may be used for short - term storage.

                       Research now being undertaken on controlled atmosphere storage for Plums and Cherries
                       may mean that storage periods could be considerably extended in the near future.

                       If this is the case, fruit of the correct mineral analysis will be essential for longer-term
                       storage. The correct mineral analysis to enable longer-term storage is still being
                       determined but will be updated as soon as sufficient data is available.

                       The quality of stored fruit and the incidence of storage rots can be reduced by:

                       1.         Reducing the incidence of Brown rot in orchards by applying white bud fungicide
                                  applications to prevent further infection, removing spur cankers and mummified
                                  fruit when seen.

                       2.         Only picking sound undamaged fruit.

                       3.         Not picking fruit that is damaged, overripe, contaminated with soil or mud splash.

                       4.         Picking carefully with trained and supervised pickers.

                       5.         Using clean trays.

                       6.         Picking every day or every other day depending on current temperatures to ensure
                                  correct quality for storage is achieved.

                       7.         Picking fruit that is not overripe and in the case of Victoria‟s only with a hint of
                                  carmine colour, if it is intended for storage. Victoria‟s must have 15% colour to
                                  prevent failure from ripening properly when removed from storage.

                       8.         Preventing field heat building up in picked fruit by shading trays and removing
                                  them from the orchard at regular intervals to the chilling facility.

                       9.         Loading stores and cooling fruit as quickly as possible.

                       9.4.2      Improving the short term storage potential of Cherries

                       Storage potential can be improved by giving attention to the following.

                       1.         Reducing the incidence of Brown rot & Botrytis in the orchard by good orchard
                                  hygiene and the application of myclobutanil, febuconazole or fenhexamid if
                                  necessary for control.

                       2.         Only picking sound undamaged fruit and discarding any fruit that is cracked.

                       3.         Picking fruit that has achieved it‟s full size, colour and optimum sugar levels.

                       4.         Picking carefully with trained and supervised pickers.

                       5.         Using clean trays.

                       6.         Picking fruit that is not overripe if it is intended for storage.

                       7.         Preventing field heat building up in picked fruit by shading trays and removing
                                  them from the orchard at regular intervals to the chilling facility.

                       8.         Loading stores and cooling fruit as quickly as possible.

                       9.         Only storing varieties that have the capability of storing well and still able to
                                  retain their quality.

 Appendix 3              BCPC’s chart showing the conditions which control the use of reduced spray (dilutent) volumes

 Use this chart for products without a statutory minimum spray volume. Identify conditions of use and maximum concentration.
 Follow all statutory conditions.

 The italicised boxes below show the conditions in the Code which forbid the use of reduced volume at the recommended dose. In these cases reduced
 volume is allowed provided that the concentration of the spray mixture does not exceed the maximum on the label – i.e. maximum dose in minimum
 volume. If these conditions do not apply to the product then it may be used at reduced volume at full dose at a spray mix concentration of up to ten
 times the label maximum. See non-italic boxes.

      Spray volumes may be reduced only if the product dose is reduced in line with                                Spray volume may be reduced at full dose. The maximum spray concentration

 Fruit analysis is not widely used in Stone Fruit at present. If storage times are to be extended in the
 future, a record of analysis would be advisable to ensure that fruit of optimum quality is designated for
 longer term storage. The record sheet shown above would be suitable for this purpose.
