1). In the flow chart, the farmer needs to create a detailed overview of those aspects of the production flow for which he is responsible. It is important to note where in the production chain the farmer’s responsibility ends. At each stage, the question of whether there is a chemical, biological or physical risk to the product should be considered. The flow chart should begin with the land (production location). The farmer must ask himself whether the fields are his own, or new land that he has rented or bought.

For example, for potato farmers the risk of biological contamination is not a major issue, because potatoes will always be heat treated before consumption. The potato farmer may therefore have a more relaxed attitude towards managing the biological risks than, for example, a farmer growing leafy greens. In terms of physical and chemical contamination, however, the conditions are equal for all growers of fresh produce. Postharvest treatments also vary depending on the crop that is produced.
