Fertiliser Storage

It is important that you have a fertiliser stock inventory system. This system must record stock movement (i.e. the purchase and use of stock) and ensure that products which pose a risk to food safety and have a limited shelf life are used correctly.

Fertilisers and bio stimulants must be stored appropriately, ensuring that:

  • They are stored separately from agrichemicals and any fruit

  • Cross contamination is prevented

  • They are stored at least 25m from water sources

  • Measures are taken to prevent water sources from pollution

  • They are clearly identified on a property/orchard map (obtain a copy(s) from the grower)
