D H A TOP TRAY CLASS – RULES

1.      The DHA Top Tray Class is for a collection of three types of vegetables taken from the following list of eight. The quantity of each vegetable required for the collection is given in brackets: carrots (3), cauliflowers (2), onions (3), parsnips (3), beetroot (3), potatoes (3), runner beans (6 pods), tomatoes (6). Each type of vegetable will be judged out of a total of 20 points. This is split into three sections as follows: 7 points for size, shape and colour; 7 points for condition; 6 points for uniformity. The overall mark will therefore be out of a total of 60.
2.      All vegetables are to be displayed for effect. The vegetables must be displayed within an area measuring 45 cms by 60 cms, without bending any part of them. No part of any exhibit may exceed the size of the tray. A tray or board measuring 45 cms by 60 cms can be used to display the vegetables or the area can simply be marked on the staging. Where a tray has a lip or edge, it is the internal measurements that must not exceed 45 cms by 60 cms.
3.      A black cloth is permitted and the tray may be painted. Parsley is allowed for garnishing but no other foliage or accessories such as plates, sand, rings, etc. will be allowed. Onion tops may be tied or whipped using raffia or string.
4.      The winners of the DHA Top Tray Class will receive seed vouchers.
Notes for Exhibitors & Judges
Carrots, beetroot and parsnips must have foliage trimmed back to 7.5cms.
Beans must be displayed with some stalk attached.
Tomatoes must be displayed with calyces (the green flower bud case).
Judges may handle exhibits, open pods, etc. to check for quality.
The tray, board or staging must not be cut or mutilated in any way at all – such as cutting holes for standing onions in.
Judges should use their discretion when judging the DHA Top Tray Class, remembering that entries may come from inexperienced exhibitors.
The points awarded should be clearly marked by the judges on the exhibitor’s cards.
Any queries that may arise regarding anything other than the above rules should be referred to and decided by the DHA show committee
Failure to abide by any of these rules may lead to disqualification.
