  • Water recycling: solution for hygiene challenges in carrot farming

These infections are not only active in the field, but also during storage, before the carrots are washed. Why is this the case? During the harvesting of the carrots, a relatively large amount of soil is picked up, including spores and fungi. Storage and… Read more
