N.C. Market Ready Fresh Produce Safety – Field to Family Training Curriculum

One of the first tools released by N.C. MarketReady will be the Fresh Produce Safety – Field to Family training curriculum to help fruit and vegetable growers across the state minimize fresh produce safety risks. The training manual will be distributed statewide in November to Cooperative Extension agents who will offer workshops for growers. The training manual focuses on Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), including what it takes to obtain GAPs certification, and managing risks from field to market.
