Microbial Water Testing

Kansas State University is now offering free microbial water testing to all fruit and vegetable growers in KS and MO. We can provide a maximum of 10 samples/farm for free, until our generous grant funding from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (grant 2016-70020-25800) runs out. If you need water sampling bottles, please contact Cal Jamerson at agri@ksu.edu and we can send you some. Samples must arrive at our lab in Olathe, Kansas on ice and within 24 hours of the sample being taken. More information on collecting water samples and how to submit them is available in the following documents:
