  • GOOD AGFRICULTURE PRACTICES IN THE FRESH VEGETABLES AND FRUITS
  • GAP  The government aims to improve  food production for both the local and export  markets. Thus, the government launched  several good agricultural practice (GAP
  • GAP  The schemes are required because of the  challenges the country faced when the World  Trade Organization (WTO) started to implement  the concept of free trade worldwide. Likewise,  the country also needed to prepare for the  implementation of ASEAN Free Trade Area  (AFTA). The requirements of sanitary and  phytosanitary standards (SPS) by many  countries necessitate Malaysia to produce  agricultural products that comply with these  requirements. Besides, the issue of food  safety is very much on the consumers mind  nowadays.
  • SALM  The first GAP scheme introduced in Malaysia  was “Skim Akreditasi Ladang Malaysia”  (SALM) or Malaysian Farm Accreditation  Scheme by the Department of Agriculture  Malaysia (DOA). The scheme was later  changed to “Skim Amalan Ladang baik  Malaysia,” carrying the same acronym SALM,
  • SPLAMSALT  Other GAP schemes in the making are  the Malaysian Aquaculture Farm Certification  Scheme or “Skim Pensijilan Ladang Akuakultur  Malaysia” (SPLAM) of the Department of  Fisheries Malaysia (Fig. 2) and the Good  Animal Husbandry Scheme or “Skim Akreditasi  Ladang Ternakan” (SALT) of the Malaysian  Department of Veterinary Services
  • CURRENT ISSUES BY MOA: SALM  SALM: FARM ACCREDIATION SCHEME OF MALAYSIA ( SKIM AKREDITASI MALAYSIA)  SALM IS THE NATIONAL PROGRAM IMPLEMENTED BY MOA TO RECOGNIZE AND ACCREDIT FARMS WHICH ADOPTMGOOD AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES (GAP), OPERATE IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WAY AND YIELDING PRODUCTS THAT ARE OF QUALITY, SAFE AND SUITABLE FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION
  • SALM  MALAYSIAN FARM GOOD AGRICULTURAL  PRACTICE SCHEME (SALM)  This scheme was launched on 31 January 2002  by the DOA. It is a voluntary scheme, where  interested farms can register and undergo a  series of steps before the farm can be  accredited. Initially, DOA, in performing its  primary function, gives advice to a farm  interested in SALM accreditation.
  • SALM  The scheme is on a  voluntarily basis. Any farm growing crops of  importance to the Malaysian economy can  apply to join the scheme. Upon registration,  the farm is required to conform to a series of  requirements meted out by the SALM  Committee (Fig. 5).
  • SALM  PROCESS OF ACREDITATION:  ACCREDITATION IS ACHIEVED THROUGH VISITATIONS TO FARMS TO EVALUATE FARMING PRACTICES SO THAT THESE ARE IN CONFORMANCE WITH STIPULATED CONDITIONS IMPOSED BY STANDARDS, GUIDELINES AND REGULATIONS CURRENTLY IN PLACED
  • SALM  FORMS OF RECOGNITION:  FARMS CONFORMING TO THE STIPULATED CONDITIONS WILL RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE OF OFFICIAL RECOGNITION, WHICH ALLOWS THE PRODUCER TO AFFIX SEALS OF QUALITY ON THEIR PRODUCTS DESTINED FOR DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL MARKETS
  • SALM  SCOPE OF EVALUATION:  THREE MAJOR ASPECTS RELATING TO-  a. THE ENVIRONMENTALLY SETTING OF THE FARM  b. FARMER’S ADHERENCE TO GOOD AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES  c. SAFETY OF THE PRODUCES
  • SALM- ASPECTS ENVIRONMENT  LEGALITY OF FARM  ALTITUDE ABOVE MEAN SEA LEVEL  PREVIOUS USE OR HISTORY OF THE LAND  SOIL TYPE AND SUITABILITY OF THE FARM  SLOPE AND TERRAIN OF FARM  SOIL EROSION RISK FACTOR  SOURCE AND QUALITY OF IRRIGATION WATER AND FARM USE  SOURCE AND DISTANCES FROM POLLUTION CENTERS
  • SALM- VERIFICATION OF FARM PRACTICES  FARM RECORDS OF ACTIVITIES UNDERTAKEN  SOIL AND SUBSTATE PREPARATION AND MANAGEMENT  SELECTING OF PLANTING MATERIALS  CROP NUTRITION OR FERTILIZER PROGRAM  CROP PEST MAMANGEMENT SYSTEM  HARVESTING TECHNIQUES AND FIELD TRANSPORT  POST HARVEST TREATMENT, GRADING AND PACKAGING  STORAGE OF FARM INPUTS AND PRODUCTS  FARM WASTE DISPOSAL SYSTEM  FARM WORKIER LEGAL STATUS, WELFARE AND SAFETY TRAINING OF FARM OPERATIVES
  • SALM- SAFETY OF FARM  PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF PRODUCE EX-FARM GATE PRODUCES COVERING:  PHYSICAL QUALITY OF PRODUCE –APPEARANCE, INFESTATION FROM PESTS AND TASTE  LEVELS OF PESTICIDE RESIDUE IN THE PRODUCE- DITHIOCARBARMATRES, ORGANO-CHLORINE, ORGANO-PHOSPHATES AND SYNTHETIC PYRETHROIDS  CONTAMINATIONOF HEAVY METALS –ARSENIC, LEAD, MERCURY AND CADMIUM
  • THE MAJOR MUST OF ACCREDITATION  THE FARM IS A LEGAL ENTITY  THE FARM HAS A SOIL INSPECTION REPORT  THE SOIL AND TERRAIN IS SUITABLE FOR THE INTENDED CROP  THE FARM IS SITUATED AT AN ELEVATION LESS THAN 100 METERS ABOVE SEA LEVEL  THE FARM PRACTICES SOUND SOIL CONCERVATION MEASURES  THE FARM MAINTAINS UP-TO-DATE RECORDS OF ACTIVITIES
  • THE MAJOR MUST OF ACCREDITATION  SEWAGE OR INDUSTRIAL SLUDGE IS NOT PERMITTED FOR FERTILIZATION  GENETICALLY MODIFIED PLANTING MATERIALS ARE NOT PERMITTED  THE PESTICIDES USED ARE LEGALLY REGISTERED BY THE PESTICIDES BOARD  THE FARM PRACTICES INTEGFRATED PEST MANAGEMENT ( IPM)  THE FARM POSSESS A PROIPER STORAGE AREA FOR PESTICIDES AND FERTILIZERS
  • THE MAJOR MUST OF ACCREDITATION  FARM WORKERS USE PERSONAL PROTECTIVE CLOTHING WHEN APPLYING PESTICIDES  THE FARM POSSESS A PROPER WASTE DISPOSAL PLAN  THE FARM PRACTICES GOOD HARVESTING TECHNIQUES, HANDLING AND TRANSPORT  THE FARM EMPLOYS WORKERS THAT ARE LEGAL  PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN FARM PRODUCE ARE LESS THAN THE MAXIMUM RESIDUE LIMITS ( MRL) OF SCHEDULE 16 OF THE FOOD ACT 1983  CONTENTS OF HEAVY METALS BELOW THE PERMISSIBLE LIMITS OF SCHEDULE 14 OF THE FOOD ACT, 1983
