The goal of this project is to support California specialty crop growers as they work to meet the new compliance standards of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule (PSR). WIFSS at UC Davis and UC ANR will develop educational, training, and resource materials that can be shared with growers directly or through extension specialists, farm advisors, or industry groups. The materials will be made available online and in multiple languages (Spanish, Hmong, Mandarin, and English) to meet the diverse needs of California specialty crop growers.

This web-based mini-course was developed as part of a blended-learning course to train FDA and state food safety investigators how to conduct on-farm investigations. This mini-course provides background information on produce farming in the United States, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), Agricultural Water Use, and Pathogens (bad bugs) of concern for fresh produce contamination. There is also a module on a Web of Causation – a conceptual model that illustrates the complex relationships among pathogens and products leading to contamination. This model, conceptualized and developed by WIFSS, provides a framework for guiding an investigation or assisting in the assessment of a farming system to determine potential sources and routes of contamination.
