Who should attend?

This one-day training course is for produce growers. The Produce Safety Rule, which is part of the new new federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), requires that fruit and vegetable farms that grow, harvest, pack, harvest and/or hold produce and do not qualify for an exemption or exclusion from the rule attend this training. To learn more about if your farm is covered by the rule view the FDA's Coverage and Exemptions/Exclusions Flow Chart or contact the MDA's Produce Safety Program.

What to Expect at the FSMA Produce Safety Rule Training Course?

The training will consist of both practical guidance for implementing Good Agricultural Practices and the FSMA Produce Safety Rule. There will be time for questions and discussion within each module, so farms should bring any questions they have about farm food safety and their operations.

Some key topics that will be addressed during the day:

  • Microorganisims relevant to produce safety and where they may be on the farm
  • Practices that reduce risks, and practical methods to implement these practices on the farm
  • Parts of the farm food safety plan and how to begin writing one
  • Requirements of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and how to meet them


**NOTE: We are unable to provide lunches for registrations received after Wednesday, November 28th at 12pm. Registrations will remain open, but participants will be asked to provide their own lunches.**
