Today’s technology and innovations have affected the agriculture sector as well as every sector; traditional production techniques were insufficient.  In this sense, the interest of the industrialists in agriculture has increased and the capital movement has started to shift towards agriculture. As a result of these investments, larger and higher-standard technological production areas were established.

Food production has a very important strategy in today’s world. While half of the world is struggling with hunger, the other half wants the food they produce and consume to be safe. When safe food is mentioned, products that are not harmful to human health, that do not contain physical, chemical and microbiological residues, and that are traceable at the same time come to mind.  In order to improve production and sell the products we produce to the right markets, manufacturers and institutions and organizations that package, distribute, even store and market these products have very important responsibilities.  Today, traceability of agricultural products has become the most important issue in terms of ensuring food safety all over the world. Various studies have been done on this subject and are still being done. Now the consumer wants to know the production process of the food that comes to her table. There is a concept that arises from all these requirements that has influenced the entire agriculture and export sector in recent years. This concept is good agricultural practices covering minimum agricultural production criteria.

Retailers, which dominate the majority of the fresh fruit and vegetable market in Europe, came together under the name of EUREP in 1997 in order to minimize certain risks that threaten human health, which have come to the fore in recent years, in the fresh fruit and vegetable products they supply to their consumers. In 1999, they created the EUREPGAP standards, which form the basis of today’s Good Agricultural Practices. The Eurepgap standard was revised in 2007 and accepted by all countries of the world and was named GLOBALGAP. With this protocol, retailers; They ask for assurance from the suppliers and therefore the manufacturers that “the product they put on their shelves will not harm their customers”. In Turkey, the Ministry of Agriculture did not remain indifferent to these developments and published the Good Agricultural Practices Regulation based on the same principles. A set of agricultural standards that shape the Turkish Agricultural sector has now begun to be implemented. The Good Agricultural Practices Regulation was first published in the Official Gazette dated 08.09.2004 and numbered 25577. The Good Agricultural Practices regulation was later revised on 7 December 2010 and became a more comprehensive set of standards.
