Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)

Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) aim at meeting consumer needs for products that are of high quality, safe and produced in an environmentally and socially responsible way. To enable farmers to participate in this expanding market, AGPC monitors development of GAP protocols and takes concrete action to disseminate GAP technologies. GAP is a product of many institutions sponsoring agricultural interests, including the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) European supermarket chains and many African governments. GAP is used to increase the value of farm products and to expand markets for farmers. A UN food production expert says Good Agricultural Practices are increasing overall farmer productivity and are becoming the standard requirement for access to foreign markets.
