Supplementary notes

* Hectares of land treated refer to "active substance" treated area. This is the basic area treated by each active substance, multiplied by the number of times the area was treated e.g. A field of 3 ha is treated 4 times with active X. Therefore, the area treated is 12 ha (3x4).

** Excluding Cox apples.

The source also provides that dessert apples receive on average 17 fungicides, 5 insecticides, 3 growth regulators and 2 herbicides.
