SAFE HAVEN STANDARDS - CONSULTATION
Initially introduced after a ring rot outbreak in England and Wales in 2003 from seed sourced from The Netherlands, the Safe Haven Scheme also affords protection from Dickeya. It has been very successful at protecting GB seed stocks from these diseases and currently around 60% of UK seed growers are certified by Safe Haven Standards. The proposed new set of standards extends the scope of the Safe Haven Standards and also provides protection from brown rot and Epitrix.
Please provide feedback on the proposed new/upgraded standards by
responding to the following set of questions.
