The Nurture Module is a module that is based upon the GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) Standard. The following article describes how to manage the Nurture Module in the GLOBALG.A.P. Database. This process is similar to the IFA certification. Please note thatNurture Module is only applicable in the combination with an IFA certificate.
If a producer has no GGN yet, he has to get registered in the database. The notification and the registration procedures are identical to those for IFA. Please see the detailed description in the article Registration of a Producer or a Producer Group.
Adding Products for the Nurture Module
After the registration, please go to “Affiliation”->”Manage products” for adding the products under Nurture Module. For any further details on how to manage the products, please follow the instructions in Adding Products to Producers.
Make sure that you add the products under the NURTURE Module under “Manage Products” as displayed below:
Please choose the sub-scope under which you will add a respective product (Flowers & Ornamentals or Fruits & Vegetables)

However, the attributes can be edited any time after the acceptance or the certification is finalized. To do so, just go back to “Manage products” to modify them. Please do not forget to save your changes. The silver or gold level can also be entered into the database with the help of a product upload sheet.
