The course covers an overview of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), FSMA Produce Safety Rule regulations, and how to develop a farm food safety plan.

The Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) Grower Training Course is one way for grower to meet this requirement. The course will prepare fruit and vegetable growers to implement FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements.
