Soil Summit

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 8:00am to 5:00pm

NYSAES, Jordan Hall Auditorium 630 W. North Street, Geneva, NY 14456

Join us for an engaging 1.5 day Soil Summit including presentations and break out discussion about the benefits and challenges of raw manure use relative to the safety of fresh fruit and vegetable production. Key goals for the summit include identifying barriers to using/producing compost while identifying management strategies, resources, and additional support necessary to support growers in minimizing food safety risks on the farm, especially when using raw manure. Additionally, produce growers, educators, and researchers will gain a better understanding of current FDA research and risk assessment efforts and the final FSMA Produce Safety Rule standards included in Subpart F - Biological Soil Amendments of Animal Origin and Human Waste. Come prepared to share your knowledge, thoughts, and innovative ideas!
