On February 15, Western Growers is hosting a webinar to discuss data collection and analysis considerations to implement a pre-harvest product testing program for romaine lettuce.
In July 2022, Western Growers submitted a final report to the California Leafy Green Marketing Agreement (CA LGMA) summarizing proposed revisions and comments on potential Pre-harvest Product Testing requirements for LGMA members. After reviewing this report, the CA LGMA requested a data collection/analysis plan for the proposed program, and a Data Task Force (DTF) completed a proposed plan on December 16, 2022. This webinar will provide an overview of the DTF proposal as well as of the current thinking of the CA LGMA. This webinar aims to deliberate a proposed one-year testing program and the data collection/analysis associated with it.
From January 31, 2023, to February 15, 2023, Western Growers will receive comments on potential changes to the LGMA-approved metrics and the current data collection/analysis proposals. These documents can be accessed at the leafygreenguidance.com website, under “Important Documents”
