INTRODUCTION This specification provides the definition of the Data Plot Sheet (DAPLOS) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport. 1. SCOPE The UN Standard DAPLOS may be used for both national and international trade. It is based on universal commercial practice and is not dependent on the type of business or industry. 1.1 Functional definition A message to describe the data plot sheet exchanged between farmers and suppliers. This information includes technical description and information of the crop production in order to give information about traceability to the farmer's partners (cooperatives, manufacturers, suppliers etc.) 1.2 Field of application The Data Plot Sheet may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry. 1.3 Principles This message is an exchange between and agricultural unit and a receiving organisation (such as cooperatives, manufacturers, food industry). This message is divided in two parts: The Header section containing - The document number - The identification of the parties involved The Detail section providing the breakdown of 1 to n plots sheets contained in the exchange: - General points on the plot sheet (dates, species, variety, area, contracts, etc.) - History of the plot (previous crops, enrichment, etc.) - Analysis (details of soil analyses carried out on the plot.) - Events (i.e. all events such as observations, advice, actions taken, etc.) This breakdown will be provided as many times as there are plot sheets in the document. 2.

MESSAGE DEFINITION 4.1 Segment clarification This section should be read in conjunction with the segment table which indicates mandatory, conditional and repeating requirements. This section should be read in conjunction with the segment table which indicates mandatory, conditional and repeating requirements. The following guidelines and principles apply to the whole message and are intended to facilitate the understanding and implementation of the message: All specified dates and/or times should be in the format 'ccyymmdd'/'hhmm' unless all parties involved in the transaction agree that there is a functional requirement for an alternative format. Periods should be specified as whole numbers representing the required period as indicated in the date or time or period format qualifier (weeks,months,etc.). Conditional data that is not required in the message should not be included. Care must be taken that the segment qualifier in dependent segments does not conflict with the segment qualifier of the trigger segment of the group. Free text information within the message should be avoided as this inhibits automatic processing. 00010 UNH, Message header A service segment starting and uniquely identifying a message. The message type code for the Data Plot Sheet is DAPLOS. Note: Data Plot Sheets conforming to this document must contain the following data in segment UNH, composite S009: Data element 0065 DAPLOS 0052 D 0054 14A 0051 UN 00020 BGM, Beginning of message A segment by which the sender must uniquely identify the Data Plot Sheet Message by means of its name and number and when necessary its function. Data element 1225 may be used to identify updates to a previously sent DAPLOS message 00030 DTM, Date/time/period A segment specifying general dates and, when relevant, times related to the whole message. The segment must be specified at least once to identify the Data Plot Sheet Message date. The Date/time/period segment within other Segment groups should be used whenever the date/time/period requires to be logically related to another specified data item, for example the availability date for a specified line item (DTM following LIN). 00040 IMD, Item description A segment providing the type of agriculture practised in the farm for all crops identified within the message in free format or in coded form and when necessary identifying the language used. It may be repeated as well to provide the name in other languages. 00050 Segment group 1: NAD-RFF A group of segments identifying the parties with associated information relevant to the whole message. 00060 NAD, Name and address A segment identifying names and addresses of the parties, in coded or clear form, and their functions relevant to the message. At least one NAD-segment should be provided, for example the farmer, the cooperative, the supplier or message generator. It is recommended that, if possible, only the coded ID of the party is specified. 00070 RFF, Reference A segment identifying a reference by its type and number and when appropriate a line number within a document. 00080 Segment group 2: LIN-DTM-PIA-QTY-SG3-SG4-SG6-SG8-SG11-SG12 A group of segments providing details (e.g. crop) of a single plot. 00090 LIN, Line item A segment identifying the line item by the line item number, and identifying the plot through a unique plot key. 00100 DTM, Date/time/period A segment specifying general dates and, when relevant, times related to the line item. For example the intended year of harvest. 00110 PIA, Additional product id A segment providing identification of the crop, e.g. to identify the botanical species, the variety sown. 00120 QTY, Quantity A segment identifying the plot expected harvest for the crop. 00130 Segment group 3: CCI-CAV A group of segments specifying the characteristics and their values of the crop mixture on the plot. 00140 CCI, Characteristic/class id A segment specifying the characteristics of the crop mixture on the plot. 00150 CAV, Characteristic value A segment to specify common characteristics by value in either coded form or free format. 00160 Segment group 4: RFF-SG5 A group of segment giving references to the line item (plot) e.g. providing the surface areas of the arable crop concerned. 00170 RFF, Reference A segment identifying a reference by its type and number. For example, it's the name of the arable plot, given by the agricultural unit, the CAP island number, perennial plot number, etc.. 00180 Segment group 5: MEA-GPO A group of segments specifying physical measurements and the location related to the measurement. 00190 MEA, Measurements A segment indicating characteristic values being physical measurements (including measurable quantities and surface area) related to specified characteristics (for example, temperature, surface of the event) and where relevant measurement ranges. 00200 GPO, Geographical position A segment used to identify the geographical position of the surface area. 00210 Segment group 6: IMD-QTY-NAD-SG7 A group of segment specifying characteristics details of the arable crop, such as the description, the quantities, the relevant parties and references. 00220 IMD, Item description A segment providing the description of a characteristic of the arable crop by using specific codes or free text. For example, the type of soil, the type of sub-soil, the soil acidity, the crop residues management, commitments, etc. 00230 QTY, Quantity A segment identifying the quantity related to the characteristic specified in the Item description e.g. quantity of crop residues applied. 00240 NAD, Name and address A segment identifying names and addresses of the contractor, in coded form, and their functions relevant to the characteristics specified in the Item description. 00250 Segment group 7: RFF-DTM A group of segment specifying the references relevant to the characteristics specified in the Item description e.g. contract. 00260 RFF, Reference A segment identifying a reference by its type and number, e.g. contract number. 00270 DTM, Date/time/period A segment specifying the date relevant to the referred docu
