Purdue Extension to Host Water Summit Remote Sites

On February 27-28, the Produce Safety Alliance will hold a Water Summit near Cincinnati, OH. The purpose of the summit is to bring together growers, industry, academe, and FDA to discuss the agricultural water provisions of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule. The summit’s format is similar to PSA’s previously hosted soil summits and includes presentations from FDA, as well as breakout sessions, where participants discuss various aspects of the ag water provisions. Results of breakout groups discussions will be summarized and forwarded to FDA.

Extension will be hosting two remote sites in Indiana where attendees can participate in the water summit through distance technology. Presentations will be shown live as they are given at the main site. Additionally, attendees at the remote sites will have the same opportunities to participate in breakout groups and have results of their discussion forwarded to FDA. The remote sites will be hosted at:
