The Apple Best Practice Guide was first funded and produced by Defra in a paper form. This revised version has been 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.

Whilst information in this guide is prepared from the best available sources, neither the authors, nor the AHDB can accept responsibility for inaccuracy or liability for any loss or damage (direct or indirect) from the application of any concept or procedure mentioned.
