Water and water management is one of the most critical issues farmers face these days.  Enhancing irrigation efficiency goes beyond addressing challenges related to water supply. It also impacts nutrient and water quality management and it is critical for business operations.  Western Growers understands the issues farmers face and is sponsoring a webinar to provide an overview of the benefits of good irrigation management and techniques to improve irrigation efficiency and nutrient management through irrigation systems.

Japan has specific labeling requirements for products -- including fresh produce commodities -- that have been treated with post-harvest fungicides.  Japanese regulations require the name of the post-harvest fungicide to be identified at the point of sale (These regulations only apply to post-harvest treatment and not when a fungicide is applied prior to harvest).  Reports have indicated that these requirements have had a negative impact on U.S. fresh produce sales in Japan.

The Alliance for Food and Farming (AFF) recently updated its website to provide viewers with enhanced information on the nonprofit organization as well as additional information about the safety of fruits and vegetables.  The new website is designed to ramp up the organization’s efforts to create a higher profile for itself amongst consumers and within the produce industry.
