We hosted a series of webinars to help growers keep fresh produce free of pathogens that cause human illness. 

This is the last of three webinars. It covers the challenges of testing for chlorate levels and why the Food & Biocides Industry Group are advocating for chlorate to be regulated under ‘Contaminants’ rather than ‘Plant Protection Product (PPP)’ legislation.
