This poster represented the impact of metabolome changes due to drought and plant development on the Kale-Salmonella association. Results showed that younger plants under regular watering condition supported the highest Salmonella growth. This finding is beneficial to growers and industry professionals to reconsider safety practices when handling plants at different ages and from various growing conditions.
