Good agricultural practices (GAP) refers to the package of recommendations and available knowledge to address environmental, economic, and social sustainability for on-farm production and postproduction processes resulting in safe, healthy food and nonfood agricultural products. The adoption of GAP will ensure a clean, safe working environment for employees while eliminating the potential contamination of food products. GAP may consist of guidelines addressing the issues of site selection, adjacent land use, fertilizer use, water sourcing and use, pest control and pesticide monitoring, harvesting practices (including worker hygiene, packaging, storage, field sanitation, and product transportation), and cooler operations.
