Farm Safety – Water Testing
Farm Safety Water Testing
Now that the food safety regulations are being implemented under the Food Safety Modernization Act, many growers are confused about how the regulations apply to their farms. Regardless of whether a farm is exempt from the regulations or not, it is important to have an understanding of food safety risks on your own farm and apply simple food safety measures. These videos will show farmers approaches to implementing their food safety plans.
Regular water testing is required for both Food Safety Modernization and GAP compliance. It depends on the source of the irrigation water.
In this video Traci and Margaret of County Rail Farm near Huson, Montana, discuss their approach to water testing from their irrigation ditch.
