This brochure is published within the framework of the Scheme for the Application
of International Standards for Fruit and Vegetables established by OECD in 1962. It
comprises explanatory notes and illustrations to facilitate the uniform interpretation
of the current asparagus standard. This updated brochure illustrates the revised standard
text on asparagus. It demonstrates the quality parameters on high-quality photographs.
Thus it is a valuable tool for the inspection authorities, professional bodies and
traders interested in international trade in asparagus.
