Join Channah Rock, University of Arizona and Trevor Suslow, Produce Marketing Association and University of California, Davis, for an in-depth presentation of recent field and farm-based research simulating both pre-harvest and harvest conditions and reflecting common industry practices. These study outcomes may explain contaminant transfer scenarios on Romaine lettuce and insights to best management practices to reduce this potential. Research results will also be shared from commercial-scale evaluation of antimicrobial mitigation strategies for agricultural water and their impact on microbial survival in water, on soil and plant tissue.
Dr. Rock's research was funded through the CPS Rapid Response Research Program. The webinar will show how this approach is an option for future research learnings.
