PI: Strawn

Goal: The goal of this project was to develop microbial water quality profiles (geometric mean and statistical threshold value) for twenty different ponds on the ESV and educate growers about new FSMA agricultural water standards.

Benefits: Baseline data for growers in the region and educational resources were developed for growers to understand the new water standards. Hands-on grower workshops to learn about water testing and also how to interpret water test results.
