Refresh Your GAP Program
With bloom in full swing, now is a good time to make sure your practices reflect the principles of the eight good agricultural practices (GAP), including a training program — and documentation of that training — for all new and current employees. This is also a good time to reassess your irrigation system and test your water source for potential contamination. Remember that water used in the spray tank must come from a well-designed and -protected groundwater source or municipal water supply.
Resources are available online to help you refine your operation’s GAP program.
