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)
For more details, including all principles and criteria, please refer to the “Am I Ready?” checklist.
