Missed the Center for Produce Safety’s Research Symposium in June? No problem. Western Growers experts have condensed the research presentations into actionable insights for agribusinesses in a special four-part webinar series.

More than 30 research projects were presented to attendees over the two-day event—all containing information significant to enhancing food safety throughout the industry. Hank Giclas (Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning, Science & Technology at Western Growers) and Susan Leaman (Vice President at iDecisionSciences) have summarized the conference sessions and food safety findings into four recap webinars.

Starting today, Western Growers members have access to Webinar #1: Agricultural Water. Giclas and Leaman discuss the key factors most critical to WG members involved in sourcing, sampling, testing and treating specific types of agricultural water. The remaining webinars, which will be available in the coming weeks, will cover topics such as contamination risks in packinghouses and supply chain, hot topics regarding produce safety and validation and verification. 

Register and click-through to the webinars and listen as they translate these scientific projects into practical and applicable information that can be used by growers and handlers of fresh produce.
