The GLOBALG.A.P. Plant Propagation Material Standard (PPM)

Many producers of fruit and vegetables (F&V) and/or flowers and ornamentals (FO) also grow and sell propagation materials for F&V and FO, therefore we incorporated Plant Propagation Material (PPM) as a sub-scope into the new Version 5 of the IFA Standard.

Implementation for PPM Certification in Version 5 will include compliance with modules All Farm Base (AF), Crops Base (CB) and Plant Propagation Material (PPM).

The PPM Standard covers: Site and Soil Management, Substrates, Propagation, Propagation Facilities, Workers’ Health, Safety and Welfare as well as Trading Terms and Conditions.
