With ongoing changes in California pesticide laws and regulations, growers should be prepared with the right tools and resources, especially if County Ag inspector pays you a surprise farm visit. That is why Amanda Zito and Alya Wakeman-Hill from the Fresno County Department of Agriculture provided growers with a bucket inventory checklist regarding pesticide applications at a Sun-Maid Growers meeting in Selma this morning.
Here is what is required:
-Emergency Medical Care Posting (Outside)
-3+ Gallons of Water
-Chemical Resistant Gloves
-Labels for Chemicals being Applied
-Extra N95 Respirators
-Chemical Resistant Apron
Remember, it is always better to be safe than sorry!
