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.
