Pathogen persistence from paddock to plate (VG16042)

Key research provider: Fresh Produce Safety Centre Australia and New Zealand

What’s it all about?

This project  is looking at pre-harvest water and untreated animal manure withholding periods in relation to minimising or eliminating the risk of microbial contamination of high-risk vegetable crops. Due for completion in late 2019, its work will help growers use untreated manures and pre-harvest water confidently, with proven exclusion periods, without compromising the safety of their products.
