Increasingly often, buyers are finding it important to know the maturity stage of Salix. To fulfil this request, we want to make supplying this information mandatory as an official quality code. This we will do in two steps.
The grading code S05 (maturity stage) is recommended from March 1, 2017 and mandatory from June 1, 2017 at Salix.
The grading codes for Salix (Group 107 013 01) are as follows from 1 June 2017:
|1||S20||Minimum stem length||Mandatory|
|2||S33||Age grade timber||Mandatory|
|3||S05||Stage of maturity||Mandatory|
In order to fill in the right codes for maturity, we made ripeness photos. These can be found on the website of the VBN.
You can examine all the grading codes using the link below: Grading codes for cut flowers
You must add the grading code S05 at position 3 in your EAB software package.
