GlobalG.A.P. is an international farm management system for Good Agricultural Practice (GAP).

It has primarily been designed to reassure consumers that farm practices minimise the detrimental environmental impacts of farming operations, chemical use has been reduced and a responsible approach to worker health and safety (as well as animal welfare) has been adopted. This three-hour course will provide delegates with a basic understanding of the GlobalG.A.P. standard and their role in ensuring the system is successfully implemented.
