Objective
This multi-institutional, cross-disciplinary project will enhance food safety education for apple growers by developing and testing (a) a risk assessment checklist to reduce microbial and pesticide risks, and (b) education materials to increase knowledge of environmental laws and legal responsibilities.
More information
Strong linkages with Farm*A*Syst and Integrated Pest Management will support grower integration of food safety concerns into quality assurance programs.
