-Learn about Harmonized & Basic GAPs
-How does this apply to my farm operation?

Day 2 -Begin writing a food safety plan that compiles with a USDA GAP Audit for your farm with help from New York State Agriculture & Markets


This course is intended to improve your understanding of GAPs to guide assessment of risks and implementation of practices to reduce risks on fresh produce farms. -Taking this course will not result in your farm being "GAPs Certified". GAPs certification is done by a third party (e.g. USDA, Primus, Global GAP) and involves the successful completion of an on-farm audit.
