These courses will satisfy that requirement.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to produce safety
  • Worker health, hygiene and training
  • Soil amendments
  • Wildlife, domesticated animals and land use
  • Agricultural water
  • Poster harvest handling and sanitation
  • Developing a farm food safety plan
