This standard defines how the dose of plant protection products is expressed and describes the parameters, specific to the site and type of application, which should be recorded so that the dose can be determined in a standard way whatever the crop or product, or the equipment used for treatment. Included in the standard is a description of dose expression methods in three-dimensional crops (aerial parts of plants in commercial orchards (e.g. pome fruit, stone fruit), hop gardens and vineyards, small fruit and cane fruit crops (e.g. blueberries, gooseberries, raspberries), taller, isolated fruit trees and other high-growing crops such as fruiting vegetables both in the open field and under protected cultivation) and methods for converting between different dose expression terms.
