abstract
The use of water is ubiquitous in agricultural practices for irrigation, washing and cooling purposes. As fresh produce is consumed raw, product contamination with pathogens should be avoided. Water can be both source of or vector for transmission of pathogens. Therefore, maintaining the microbial quality of water used in both pre- and postharvest processes is of great importance and water disinfection is an efficient tool to ensure water quality. Due to some negative influences of chlorination on health and environment, a.o. harmful disinfection by-products (DBPs), the search for alternative disinfection techniques has notably increased. The aim of the study was to characterize the criteria that influence decision making when assessing possible disinfection technologies in order to prevent produce associated pathogens. The research leading to these results has been facilitated by the European Community's Seventh Framework Program (FP7) under grant agreement no 244994 (project VEG-i-TRADE).
