Produce growers and packers are encouraged to test their water to understand sanitary quality, meet buyer requirements (e.g., third-party food safety audits), and for compliance with FSMA Produce Safety Rule (PSR) requirements. Produce growers and packers may need help identifying the tests they need and labs that can perform these tests using accepted methods. Laboratories are one source of information for produce growers and packers. Information in this resource provides information for laboratories to use with farm clients, and for educators to use with laboratories that serve produce growers and packers.
