About the Webinar
For produce farms, 2016 marks the beginning of timelines established for operations to come into compliance with the FDA’s regulations associated with the Food Safety Modernization Act. While it still remains unclear as to how many aspects of the regulation will look “on the ground”, this webinar will address what diversified organic vegetable farmers need to begin thinking about with respect to moving forward toward compliance.

Erin Silva is an Assistant Professor in University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Plant Pathology and State Extension Specialist in Organic and Sustainable Cropping Systems. A major focus of her Extension programming includes on-farm food safety for diversified vegetable farmers.
