Bridging the GAPs: Approaches for treatingwater at produce farms
Fruit and vegetable growers are continuallyassessing their operations to determine where they can limit risk and increaseproductivity. Water is necessary to grow crops but can also be the carrier ofpathogens that cause foodborne illnesses when contaminated. As a result, manyhave expressed interest in learning more about how water treatment systems workand how they may fit within their production systems. Join the Produce SafetyTeam in North Carolina to gain exposure to different approaches to treatingwater that can be used during the growing season. Learn how to assess the riskfor the different water sources in your farm, meet requirements of the ProduceSafety Rule and GAP Audits; and how to verify that a water treatment system is operatingas intended.
