Description:

Bridging the GAPs: Approaches for Treating Preharvest Agricultural Water On-Farm

Fruit and vegetable growers are continually assessing their operations to determine
where they can limit risk and increase productivity. As a result, many have expressed interest in learning more about how on-farm preharvest water treatment systems work and how they may fit within their current setup. Come for a day-long course with Extension specialists and produce regulatory staff in North Carolina to gain exposure to different approaches to treating water on-farm; how to implement these systems to meet requirements of the Produce Safety Rule; and how to verify that the system is operating as intended.
