The Agricultural Water Quality and Testing Workshops for fruit and vegetable growers will be held in the afternoon of March 30 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. There is no charge for this workshop. During the workshop presenters will discuss the currently proposed water quality and testing standards in the FSMA's Supplemental Rule in greater detail, the science behind water samples and how to read test results, and will provide a hands-on demonstration focused on proper water sample collection performed by a local laboratory representative.
Participants who attend the water workshops will receive a discount on a water test from the participating laboratory, free consultation from a local laboratory representative, and take-home materials to prepare for successful water sample collection.
