Instructional Posters on Good Agricultural Practices

Initiating and implementing Good Agricultural Practices on small and medium holder farms is no easy task. The challenge is to break down complex food safety standards into basic implementation instructions and then communicate them in a simple and easy to understand way.

Introducing G.A.P. in Action–a series of instructional posters we have developed specifically for this purpose. Because the right images speak more than a thousand words, these posters use straightforward diagrams and little text to illustrate the procedures that growers must follow at different workshops on the farms.

The G.A.P. in Action series covers several areas on the farm such as basic hygiene requirements during harvesting, fertilizer application and record keeping, and proper storage of plant protection products. The simplicity of the posters helps to remind farmers and smallholders of the food safety practices required by new markets that they need to comply with.

The G.A.P. in Action posters are available in several languages to everyone. You can find previews in the quicklinks on the right. To access them, simply fill out the registration form. Once you submit it, you will receive a download link.

For printed large posters, please contact a GLOBALG.A.P. Licensed Farm Assurer in your area. You can find a complete list here.

We invite you to share the G.A.P. in Action initiative with everyone. Join us on our mission to spread Good Agricultural Practices around the world.
