Overview of the importance and scope of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) for flower crops

Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) is a code of crop production practices that ensure sustainable production of flower crops, that are environment friendly, economically viable, socially acceptable and complies with the legal standards. The set of prescribed practices must address efficient resource management besides ensuring higher yields and good quality on a sustainable basis, must take care of the welfare and safety of persons working or living in the farm. Use of quality planting material that follow the prescribed standards of uniformity, tolerance to biotic and abiotic stress must be adhered to, so as to ensure input use efficiency and sustainable production. The cultural practices must not have adverse effects on the environment, like pollution of land, water and air. This study provides an overview of GAP for different flower crops.
