SOCIAL SCIENCES 07/03/19 Global Crop Value Chains: Shifts and Challenges in South-North Relations. The worldwide importance of crop production is undisputed due to its function for basic nutrition of billions of people.
Yet, the emergence of global forces implies severe consequences for the organization of crop value chains. These forces particularly include processes of liberalization and deregulation, the dominance of large retail groups as well as ever-changing consumer demands, leading to continuous reconfigurations of crop value chains. Based on a literature review, this paper aims at thematically ‘organizing’ and differentiating the key findings of relevant empirical studies on global crop value chains, with a particular focus on South-North relations. Thereby, current shifts and challenges are identified and analysed with special attention paid to spatio-relational dimensions.

PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATION JOURNAL - 2021 - A Feasibility Study on GlobalGAP Adoption among Small Farmers in Pakistan.
During the last couple of decades, certifications’ role across the globe had taken a remarkable place with respect to meeting the international market demands for food security and safety.
The study analyzes the cost structure of GlobalGAP adoption, identify various farm level factors that may affect a farmer’s decision to get certified. Moreover, the study estimates the impact of certification on farm output. It has found that there is requirement to assess the properties of Global-GAP for Pakistani agriculture; to attain this a complete methodological idea is essential. This part will explain the analysis methods, research methodology, research design, and data collection. It would make the agriculture sector of Pakistan more export oriented, yielding higher returns to the gross domestic production of the county.

While local authorities and scientists have extended efforts to encourage more farmers to cultivate in line with the GlobalGAP or VietGAP standards, those following them have demanded a return to traditional practices.
GlobalGAP, or Good Agricultural Practices, is an international standard assuring transparency of origin, quality and food safety at each stage of production for cultivation, animal husbandry and aquaculture. The Tien Giang-based Lo Ren Vinh Kim cooperative was one of the first specializing areas in the Mekong Delta to be awarded the GlobalGAP certification in 2008. While local farmers were at first happy and proud of being ‘GAP farmers’, they are now considerably disappointed, as the products are sold at prices as low as those cultivated using the normal agricultural practices, despite their hard work on the orchards. “Yet the GlobalGAP star apples are now sold in the markets at prices equal to normal ones.” No money, no GAP The renewal fee is around USD7,000, he said.

BEEF CENTRAL 19/12/11 What's so great about Global GAP? What’s behind JBS Australia’s move last week in gaining Global GAP accreditation for three of its Australian feedlots?
Are other EU-accredited feedlots in Australia missing-out on market opportunity under the expanding EU grainfed quota by not holding Global GAP certification? Beef Central today takes a look at the mechanism and merit behind Global GAP certification, and tries to weigh-up whether it has a broader role to play in Australia’s push into gaining a slice of the expanding EU grainfed quota, due to jump from 20,000 to 48,200 tonnes later next year.

FRESHPLAZA 24/02/12 Vietnam: Growers turning their back on GlobalGap. Return to traditional practice the result of costs and work for little return farmers sayVietnam: Growers turning their back on GlobalGap Disappointed farmers in Vietnam are turning their backs on GlobalGap and VietGap accreditation, despite the fact that the country would like to see exports grow. The problem, growers say, is that they don't actually see much more money for produce grown once they have the accreditation and compliance with regulations is time consuming and hard work.
Only around 30% of GlobalGap grown produce in the country is receiving higher prices and these have been described as "slight. " Also, traders are not only not paying the right amount of money for the produce they are not buying all of it - which means the remainder must be sold at markets for the normal price.
