The Kansas Farmers Union Foundation has scholarships to offer Kansas farmers to cover participation in this PSA Grower Training!

This training provides in-depth information on produce safety. Attend entire eight hours (spread out over 2 days) of training to get an AFDO certificate of training.
Cost: $20/person, generously supported by Kansas and Missouri Departments of Agriculture.

In light of the Covid19 situation, University of Missouri Extension and Kansas State Research and Extension are partnering to offer the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Alliance (PSA) Grower Training remotely.

The class will take place on March 18 AND March 25, 2021 from 10AM-4PM each day.

In order to receive a certificate of training, you will have to attend the entire training on both days and the organizers must be able to see a live video feed of you at least part of the time during the training (you must have a working camera on your device) to ensure that you are engaged throughout the entire training.

If you are a covered farm under the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and need the training, this course will meet that requirement.
For more information visit the KSRE FSMA Produce Safety Rule Page.
You will be required to mail a course evaluation before you will receive your certificate of training.

This training is limited to produce growers in Kansas and Missouri and other regulatory or support personnel and will be limited to 25 participants. Registration will close on January 15 at 5pm.
