Eurofins BOP are the independent residue sample collectors for ZESPRI in New Zealand orchards.
The ZESPRI Crop Protection Standard is a critical component of the integrated ZESPRI System. To ensure compliance with the Crop Protection Standard, all kiwifruit intended for export by ZESPRI may be residue tested as part of the ZESPRI Residue Programme. The Residue Programme involves sampling fruit from early season through until harvest.
Features developed to deliver the service include GPS tracking, barcode sample labels, scanned in the field and on receipt at the lab.
The process is managed via the company website which has linkages to residue testing and Zespri's spray diary system.
