Water Reuse and Remediation - Phytophthora
An introduction to agricultural water reuse and remediation, including innovative ecological treatment technologies that have the potential to remediate agricultural contaminants from irrigation runoff water, so that water may be reused onsite.
An introduction to agricultural subsurface bioreactors, which have been proven to significantly reduce nitrate from agricultural runoff and drainage water, and may also serve to remediate plant pathogens like Phytophthora spp. Research from Dr. Sarah White's lab at Clemson University
In this video, you will learn a simple but accurate method to bait Phytophthora. Dr. Neelam Redekar from Oregon State University
Designing a water treatment system
Paul Fisher, Ph.D. from the University of Florida discusses the key points on how to design a successful water treatment system that will deliver water at a consistent high quality.
Pros and cons of water disinfection: A European perspective
Walter Wohanka, Ph.D. from the Geisenheim Research Center (Germany), discusses the pros and cons of water treatment techniques use to prevent disease spread through irrigation.
Disinfestants for sanitizing production surfaces
Warren Copes, Ph.D. from USDA discusses alternatives for surface cleaning and sanitation for your greenhouse. Learn how to adjust you the dose of disinfestants by understanding how water properties, materials being sanitized and the treatment process interact with the disinfestants. (USDA does not endorse any of the products mentioned in this presentation).
Pond issues and management
Ken Wagner, Ph.D. from Water Resources Services discusses the problems observed in ponds, the causes of algae problems and the alternative to manage water quality in ponds.
