Home » Enteric Viruses Control Program
Human enteric viruses are possibly present in any kind of water contaminated by human fecal material and by sewage, and can survive for a long time in water, soil, surfaces, fruits and vegetables.
If the water test results indicate possible fecal contamination (e.g.: high count of fecal coliforms), test agricultural water for Hepatitis A virus (HAV) and Norovirus (NoV).
Treat water before use if the water does not meet the potable water standard required by local regulation or with WHO recommendations.
Prevent contact between harvestable crops and the water (use drip irrigation versus overhead aerial spray).
Use potable water from closed water sources for irrigation and application of crop protection products whenever it is possible.
Ensuring that water distributed to the processing facility is safe and clean during the season
