Before your inspector shows up, it is advisable to do a self-audit with the most up-to-date grower inspection form. To find the latest addition, you can search under the forms tab on the OMMA website (or just click here). And while the audit sheet may seem daunting, there are some things you can do to help pass your inspection with flying colors.
The OMMA requires a lot of paperwork. Waste Logs, Sample Field Logs, Inspection Logs...the list goes on and on. However, by creating a solid organizational system that fits the needs of your facility, you can help keep your ducks in a row and the OMMA off your back.
