The Spring Festival is approaching, which is the peak season for apple sales. Due to the continued impact of the epidemic, many fruit exports have been blocked, making fruit export companies difficult.
After learning of the difficulties faced by fruit export enterprises, Zibo Customs immediately dispatched personnel to the orchard to communicate with the enterprises, to check the pulse, and to aim at the difficulties in exporting enterprises, and to “prescribe” with a definite goal. Persist in”making a fuss in the field”, set up a”Technology and Trade Station” research center to guide enterprises in the scientific and rational use of drugs, avoid the detection risk of chlorpyrifos, glyphosate, paraquat and other Thai banned drugs, and sign a memorandum of cooperation with the People’s Government of Yiyuan County. Improve the management of the source of food and agricultural products such as exported fruits, guide the scientific and standardized use of medicines in exported fruit orchards, and efficiently carry out pest monitoring.

Zhang Shanquan, Foreign Trade Manager of Shengquan Fruits and Vegetables Co., Ltd. said, “’Yiyuan Red’ apples are crisp and juicy, and they have been selling well. However, in the face of various control measures in different countries, we are very worried about the various information related to pesticides, pests and diseases.
