Cost-Share for Water Analysis Available

— Written By

Growers that are required to monitor irrigation or water for processing are eligible for the NCDA & CS Water Analysis Cost Share Program. Reimbursement funds will be provided for growers who test their water supply as a part of a pre- and post-harvest food safety program for up to $1,000 for laboratory analyses to determine the presence of generic E. coli bacteria (must use a certified lab). Growers can be reimbursed for multiple tests throughout the year.

Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested growers should contact Kevin Hardison at 919-707-3123 or email him at Kevin.Hardison@ncagr.gov.  Reimbursement forms and more information are available at www.ncagr.gov/markets/NCgradesvc.
