Growers are taught that 'the label is the law,' but finding the right information and understanding what it means can be difficult. This webinar will make understanding and following the label instructions more manageable in the postharvest setting and discuss the FSMA Postharvest water compliance requirements and timeframes.
At the end of the webinar, participants will understand:
- EPA labeling, what to look for, and what it means
- Ideal chemistries for use in surface sanitation and postharvest water
- Best practices for sanitizing surfaces and postharvest water
- Management of postharvest sanitation systems
- FSMA Postharvest water compliance dates

The registration deadline is December 5, 2022
Agricultural water 'risky to you?'
The second webinar is scheduled from 3:00-5:30 and is a continuation of the prior webinar on agricultural water and will feature Dr. Don Schaffner from Rutgers University. He will explain what attributes of a water testing program need to be included if it is to be risk-based.
The webinar will consist of a one-hour presentation followed by 30 min of interactive Q&A.
