Welcome to the National Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) Program. The goal of the National GAPs Program is to reduce microbial risks in fruits and vegetables by developing a comprehensive extension and education program for growers and packers. 

This website creates a user-friendly universal portal bringing GAPs related information together for growers, packers, farm workers, extension educators, scientists, state and federal government personnel, and other interested stakeholders.
