It covers the entire production process from propagation to the final product to provide your consumers with safe and sustainably produced products.

The PPM Standard serves as a reference that plant propagation material producers can use to demonstrate their compliance with GLOBALG.A.P. requirements. And it helps crops producers find reliable and assured sources for plant propagation material .
