Farm Food Safety Training with GAPs (Genesee County)

December 10 - December 11, 2013

Farm Food Safety Training with GAPs (Genesee County)
In recent years, several food borne illness outbreaks in produce have made national news. Both the produce industry and the federal government have stepped up demands for fruit and vegetable farms to meet food safety practice standards. These standards are known as GAPs (Good Agricultural Practices).

A new program, Harmonized GAPs, has been developed to combine several food safety certifications into one program. New York's retail produce buyers, such as Wegmans, are asking growers to adopt Harmonized GAPs certification in many cases.

In response, Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Cornell Vegetable Program, the Cornell Lake Ontario Fruit Team, the Produce Safety Alliance, and the Cornell National GAPs Program, with assistance from NY Ag & Markets, will be presenting a training for farm food safety or GAPs, including Harmonized GAPs. The training is open to all produce farms and related industry people. This workshop is partially funded through a grant from the Genesee Valley Regional Market Authority.

Announcements

Late Blight Confirmed in Many NY Counties

Late blight (LB) in potatoes and tomatoes has now been confirmed in the following counties: Allegany, Erie, Genesee, Madison, Livingston, Ontario, Schuyler, Tompkins, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates Counties. Several of these are new counties confirmed last week. New samples with LB are coming in all the time. It is likely now present in all counties in Western NY, the Finger Lakes Region, and Central NY.  

The continued wet weather has been very favorable for development. The majority of LB samples from the area that were tested have been the US23 strain, sensitive to mefenoxam fungicides (Ridomil, other materials). The only exceptions remain in Allegany County, where the mefenoxam sensitivity of the LB is unknown, and one sample each of US24, with variable mefenoxam sensitivity, in Erie and Wyoming Counties.

If you think you might have LB contact Carol MacNeil, John Gibbons, or another Cornell Vegetable Program staff member. LB DSS users: If you need assistance contact Ian Small or Carol MacNeil.
