The Primary Production examination addresses topics relevant to those sites that grow or farm product such as food sector categories 1 through 6.

If the examinee is unsure of their food sector category, if their needs span both pre-farm and post-farm categories, or for those food sector categories otherwise not represented (e.g., 26, 27, 31 -34) then the examinee should choose the post-farm gate examination.
