Apple Best Practice Guide

The Apple Best Practice Guide was first funded and produced by Defra in a paper form. A revised version was produced by AHDB Horticulture (formerly known as HDC) in an electronic format, thus allowing individual sections to be up-dated easily following relevant research projects. Whole sections or individual chapters of the guide can be downloaded and individual pages printed.  The guide is being transferred to NIAB and this page will be updated with the new link as soon as it is available.

In the meantime is you have any queries about the guide please email
