The aim of ANVAS is to provide assurance that avocado nursery stock purchased meets an industry standard, is true to type, and that appropriate steps have been taken to reduce the chance of introduction of serious pathogens into the production environment.
ANVAS accredited nurseries are required to adhere to specific production practices, undertake pathogen testing of plant material, undertake monitoring of stock throughout its growth stages and be independently audited each year to confirm their adherence to ANVAS requirements.
