Arkansas Farm and Produce Safety [AR]

PSA Grower Training
August 27, 2019 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: U of A Cooperative Extension Services - Education Wing

Join us to learn about new regulations for fruit and vegetable producers. Topics covered will include agricultural water, soil amendments, worker health and hygiene, wildlife management, postharvest handling, and food safety plans. 
For fresh produce farms, FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule sets mandatory federal standards for growing, harvesting, packing, and holding produce. Most produce farms will be affected by this Rule.

Materials, lunch and snacks will be provided.
