49-2015 - Horticulture Exports Program – Clarification of grower requirements for export of stone fruit to Thailand and Taiwan
8 October 2015
To advise growers that maps of orchard blocks are not required for export approval of stone fruit to Thailand and Taiwan.
Industry Advice Notice no. 2015/47 stated “Growers may divide their orchard into blocks. Each block must be clearly identified on the application form and on the orchard map by its physical address or geographic co-ordinates.” This is incorrect, there is no requirement for growers to provide maps of orchard blocks during registration for export approval of stone fruit to Thailand and Taiwan.
Summary of changes and key points
Please note it is not a requirement for growers to provide maps of orchard blocks with their application for export approval to export stone fruit to Thailand and Taiwan.
