New farm-gate hygiene protocols

One of the top 10 farm-gate hygiene practices is to ensure all people who come onto your property disinfest their footwear upon entry and exit in accordance with the Footwear and Small Hand Tool Disinfestation Protocol. This protocol has been recently revised based on peer-reviewed research.

Footwear and small hand tools must now be immersed for a minimum of 60 seconds in a 2% sodium hypochlorite solution, with no rising after immersion, to ensure disinfestation.
