Fruit growing

The importance of certified production
Certification (official certification) is a process of producing sanitary verified propagating material and nursery fruit plants. 

The advantage of certified production (in comparison with CAC) lies in the certified original material (genetic, sanitary). Further propagation stages are known and controlled (traceability of progeny)!

The importance of planting certified material:

  • reaching higher yields related to sanitary status,
  • prevention of spreading of diseases.

Legal ground:
Rules on Marketing of Propagating Material and Fruit Plants Intended for Fruit Production, (Of.J. of RS, No. 17/06 and 107/2009).

The annual production application (for the certified production) is sent by the producer to the certification authority (Agricultural Institute of Slovenia) each year by 30 April at the latest! The annual application form of production together with the instructions for its filling is available on the current page.

The surveillance of the production of certified (officially certified) fruit plant material is performed by Agricultural Institute of Slovenia which was appointed as certification authority. The surveillance is carried out on the basis of annual production application.
