Disinfecting irrigation water for fresh produce: webinar

Past Event

8 March 2019

1:30 PM - 2:50 PM

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

The second of three webinars heard how work in Spain has measured chlorate levels in a spinach crop that was irrigated with chlorine dioxide treated water. It also covered information about the accumulation of disinefection by-products from electrolysed water.
