End date

Objective

First to investigate the population dynamics of non-pathogenic Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Non-O157 Shiga Toxigenic E. coli in soils amended with Biological Soil Amendments of Animal Origin (BSAAO) and their potential for transfer to produce surfaces. Lastly to identify specific factors which may impact the survival of Salmonella spp. and STEC O157 in soils which may also correlate to higher transfer coefficients onto commodities grown in soils amended with untreated BSAAO.
