NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Department of Agriculture is administering a reimbursement program for farmers who grow fruits or vegetables and have received Good Agriculture Practices certification.

Those farmers are eligible to receive reimbursement for costs related to certification for field or packing house audits.

Costs that qualify include application fees, inspection costs and inspector travel.

Reimbursements are limited to 50 percent of an individual's certification costs up to $1,500 until funds are depleted.
