Introduction

  • At present, fruit and vegetables are in high demand for local consumption and tourists.

  • Home gardening is very popular for most Cambodian farmers in rural areas

  • Production and technology for farming remain vital among producers

  • Cambodian GAP on fresh fruit and vegetables have been endorsed already, and in the awareness and training campaign stage.


Implementing Agency

  • The National GAP standard was approved by MAFF through Ministerial Proclamation No 099 MAFF on 10 March 2010 has 6 articles.

  • The General Directorate of Agriculture is responsible for implementation of management mechanism of GAP and issuing certificate of GAP compliance.

  • Crop Product Quality and Safety Improvement Office/PPSPSD play a role in registration, certification, inspection, supervision for GAP farming


Implementation of national GAP

The objectives of GAP program are to ensure

that food crops produced in Cambodia are

safe. The GAP program is the mean for all

stakeholders in food production chain to be

able to demonstrate their commitment to:

  • Maintaining consumer confidence in food quality and safety

  • Producing safety by growers

  • Minimizing negative impact on the environment

  • GAP implementation was started in 2010 by PPSPSD but only conducts training to technical staff and farmers and also has been public and launching.


Leaflet

Produce Quality Module

Food Safety Module

ASEAN GAP

Conducted Farmer Training on GAP in 6 Provinces for 350 farmers

Conducted Training of Trainers on GAP for 55 Trainers

Conducted dissemination Workshop on GAP

  • Government’s fund: 2009-2011 conduct training 35 TOT and 3360 Stakeholders

  • Under ASEAN-Japan project year 2011 supported publication of 2 modules ( Environment

  • Management and Worker health, safety and welfare).


Constraints

  • Government agencies are promoting GAP among

  • producers, processors and trader through Ministerial

  • Proclamation No 099 MAFF dated 10 March 2010.

  • However, the achievement of GAP targets is impeded by:

  • Lack of understanding of GAP among primary producers, processors, distributors, consumers and public servants

  • Weak linkages between technical knowledge and extension services and farmers


Constraints

  • Inadequate revenue resources for monitoring, supervision and field demonstrations of vegetables and fruits

  • Small and fragmented production units, with farmers that operate individually, with little incentive for adopting GAP

  • Lack of a regulatory framework to facilitate domestic adoption of and compliance with ASEAN GAP standard and a lack of clarity regarding which agency is responsible for public sector crop inspection and certification

  • Limited capacity of testing laboratory including a shortage of qualified staff and funds.


Future Plan

  • Establishment of standard and guidelines for certification (certified farm and crops)

  • Establishment of GAP Certification body, Identifying list of inspectors and Trainer’s training

  • Establishment of GAP for each specific crop

  • Set up certification system in market.
