On 1 May 2017, there will be a change in the product specification for Bouvardia. The choice of pre-treatments for Bouvardia is being enlarged.
The Knowledge Centre conducted a study in the past year on behalf of the manufacturer Vaselife International to examine whether it is reasonable to add the product Vase Life Universal Hydrate 100 Clear Post Harvest (code 100 on the product’s label) to the product specification of Bouvardia. The study revealed that all criteria have been met for adding this product to the mandatory products in the product specification of Bouvardia.
- From 1 May 2017, Vase Life Universal Hydrate 100 Clear Post Harvest (code 100 on the product’s label) will be added as an authorised product for pre-treatment for Bouvardia (already listed products remain authorised together with this new one).
- You must state the correct code of the pre-treatment product in your supply information. With this code the laboratory can check that the pre-treatment product is being used correctly.
- The grading code S65 pre-treatment must be added from today at position 6 in your EDF software package.
- For grading code S65 you must select the correct pre-treatment product by using code 100 on the product’s label = Vase Life Universal Hydrate 100 Clear Post Harvest.
