Leaf Sampling

Critical Guidelines: #

  • Correct time of sampling is from mid-September to mid-November.
  • Only fruit bearing trees are sampled.
  • A leaf sample should represent a planting of not more than 3 ha.
  • Leaves should preferably be sampled in the morning after the dew has dried off.
  • Select +/- 20 healthy trees well distributed throughout the planting.
  • The first leaf sample of a specific planting must be accompanied by a soil sample.
  • Leaves should be gathered in clean paper bags.
