Good Agricultural practices (GAP) presentation
Come learn about Good Agricultural practices (GAP) on Tuesday March 19 at the Mahaska County Extension Office; 212 North I Street, Oskaloosa. Please note the start time is 6:30 pm.
GAPs are a set of recommendations that can help improve the quality and safety of the produce grown. These guidelines can be adapted and or incorporated into any production system. GAPs focus on four primary components of production and processing: soil, water, hands and surfaces.
This is a new optional Master Gardener training topic. Any interested gardener is welcome to attend. To insure enough handouts, please indicate to the office if you plan to attend.
